Adults

We support autistic adults (18-25) by hosting social groups in Barrow-in-Furness and Kendal on a weekly basis. These groups offer an opportunity for autistic young adults to meet up weekly for a meal, drink, or chat. We are unable to offer transport to and from the meeting spot.

We also host a weekly group for autistic adults with learning disabilities at Greengate Children's Centre.

"I've made so many friends from it. It's always been a good experience and I look forward to seeing all of my friends on a Friday. The group is full of like minded people who always look out for each other."

Funded by the Francis Scott Trust

Autus Cumbria has been given funding from the Francis Scott Trust to develop our provision for adults with autism.

Nationally only 15% of adults identified as having ASC are in full time employment. Past discussions with employment support agencies based in South Lakes have confirmed that they have a significant client base that are identified as having hidden disabilities, learning difficulties and/or speech and language difficulties. They believe some of these people are on the Autistic Spectrum, although they may not necessarily have a diagnosis.


As ASC specialists we are looking at ways to support adults (18+) to access services and activities that will reduce social isolation and promote their own self advocacy and wellbeing. We are also working alongside businesses and organisations to develop their understanding of adults with ASC and how to support them effectively.
