This is a project for 16-19 year olds with lower support needs and provides a variety of bespoke skills courses to support learning and development alongside social opportunities within the community.

We offer a smaller, quieter environment for learners one day a week that can be adapted to suit the needs of the individual. 

Most of our skills courses will run for approximately 6 weeks and follow a planned scheme of work. We aim to empower the learners, reduce anxieties, build confidence and independence and develop skills which will be transferable as they approach adulthood.

Social activities are also based around young peoples interests and have previously included paint-balling, bowling, footgolf, cinema, badminton and museum visits.

Current courses available include:

  • Communication and Social Skills
  • Money Management
  • Pre-Employment and Volunteering
  • Travel Training
  • Cookery

Please note, we are not currently running any skills courses, but please email  enquiries@autismbeds.org to register your interest and we’ll be in touch when they are running again.
