This service provides Advocacy, Information and Mentoring to autistic adults locally that have little or no funded support. This service aims to:
— Increase access to services that people want or need,
— Increase access to information to help people make choices about support/services available.
Leeds Autism AIM is co-led by autistic adults. We can provide support/information on issues such as employment, education, access to health or mental health services, support post diagnosis, strategies for managing day to day, information about specialist services and other activities or support available locally.
Leeds Autism AIM service also includes:
- The Autism Hub: a weekly drop in service providing access to a range of support and information including CAB advice on issues such as benefits, housing, DWP employment advice, peer support, information and a range of workshops/talks.
- Autism Mentoring Service: specialist trained volunteer mentors work one to one with autistic adults according to a defined plan. They provide regular time limited support to identify goals and support and planning to overcome barriers to achieving goals.
- Information/Signposting: We can provide this through the Autism Leeds website, we can also provide this by phone, email or at the drop in autism hub.
