Member Organisations

For over 35 years, North East Autism Society has led the way in providing specialist care, education and services for children, young people and adults with autism, across the North-east of England.

Recognised for our innovation and excellence, everything we do stems from an unswerving belief in providing bespoke person-centred support. It’s at the heart of who we are to recognise the uniqueness of every human being, and to understand that as a spectrum condition no two people with autism will have the same needs or wants.

More about North East Autism Society

We passionately believe that children and adults with autism have significant skills and strengths, which can be developed throughout their lifetime. Our approach aims to support individuals with autism to participate in society as independent and valued citizens, enjoying equal rights and opportunities but also enriching the world around them.

Our services include education for children aged 3-19, post 16 education and social/vocational training along with supported and open employment opportunities for adults. We provide year round residential placements and supported living services. We work directly with the parents of children with autism offering family support which includes short breaks, support in the home, evening and weekend activities.
