We believe that autistic adults should have the opportunity to lead an independent and fulfilling life and we work tirelessly to empower our members to achieve just that. We have developed a range of services to facilitate this mission based upon our members feedback.
Our members told us that the options available for autistic adults without a learning difficulty can be very limited as they often do not qualify for support. In response, Autism Bedfordshire began to develop a range of services for autistic adults in Bedfordshire who are at risk of social isolation but do not qualify for statutory support.
Since then we have continued to grow and adapt to an increasing demand yet our vision has remained the same: to empower autistic adults across Bedfordshire.

To access any of our services you need to become a member of Autism Bedfordshire.
The Bedfordshire Think Autism Partnership Board is a meeting held every 3 months to discuss the local autism agenda. The membership of the group is made up of local providers and local services, local autistic residents and carers of autistic people, 3 local Councils and Health. The partnership board covers the whole of Bedfordshire and is organised by Autism Bedfordshire in partnership with Central Bedfordshire Council, Bedford Borough Council, Luton Borough Council, and the Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group.
