Charity details

Autism Anglia

Autism Anglia is an independent charity that provides care and support to autistic children, adults, and their families in East Anglia.

Services in Essex, Suffolk, and Norfolk, managed from office in Colchester, offer personalised approaches that provide each individual with the necessary skills and strategies to enable them to realise their own strengths and abilities.

The charity also seeks to promote greater knowledge and understanding of autism through training, education, and supplying information to the public and professionals.

We offer numerous services for autistic people and their families, including:

Adult Services

Adult Services offers specialist support to adults aged 18 onwards within our Residential Services, Supported Living, Outreach Programme, and Opportunities Centres in Essex and Norfolk. Our holistic approach encourages adults to develop new skills, create opportunities and build confidence to live more independently in the community. We ensure that the changing needs of the adults we support are recognised, and that each person living in our residential housing is accommodated based on their needs and wishes.

Residential Services

All the residential properties provided by the charity (in Essex and Norfolk) are individualised to the needs of people we support to ensure a homely and welcoming feel. Each property offers accommodation for between 3-11 adults who all have their own private bedrooms and have access to communal rooms, shared gardens, and recreational activities such as swimming pool, sensory areas, and trampolines depending on the property.

Supported Living

Supported Living caters for a range of abilities, from high support needs who require 24/7 support on a 1:1 basis, to those who require one or two hours of support each day or week.

Every Supported Living service is within the local community and is either a housing association property, privately rented or owned by Autism Anglia. Services range from 2-4 adults in one property to those who prefer to live alone. Currently, all our Supported Living homes are in Colchester, however, this does not mean new services cannot be opened in other areas, we are looking to expand into Norfolk.

Outreach Programme

Help is only help if it does what you need...

It’s a simple concept but one that sits in the centre of our Outreach Programmes. Outreach is a service to help autistic adults with any aspects of life they may need some extra support with; it is support provided within a home or organisation which is not managed by Autism Anglia.

Opportunities Centres

We have two opportunities Centres – One in Dereham Norfolk and another in Colchester Essex. Both centres are open during the day and cater specifically for autistic adults.
