General Support, advice and advocacy

When you first get in touch with Assert, you will be asked to come along to an informal meeting with our Autism Support Advisor. There may be a waiting list for this. This is to introduce and explain our services, find out a little more about you, and to see if our services will match any of your needs and aspirations. If Assert are the right service to offer you support and social and learning opportunities, we will ask you to complete our registration forms. Once registered, you are then able to access some wider services within Assert.

As well as registration with Assert, our Autism Support Advisor can support you with advice, guidance and signposting around Autistic Spectrum Condition (ASC) and any specific needs/issues.

We also offer extended work through our Support Sessions with our Caseworker. The support sessions are spread over a maximum of 7 hours. You will work together to break down either an aspiration you’d like to achieve, task that you need to complete or an issue you’re experiencing that you might need some extra support, advice or advocacy with in order to achieve your goal.

Please note that sadly we are unable to offer long term ongoing one-to-one support. If you require an advocacy service, please speak to our Autism Support Advisor who can signpost you to organisations that can help.
