Berkshire Adult Autism Support Service

Last updated: 14/02/2023

Autism Berkshire provides the Berkshire Adult Autism Support Service to help adults aged 18+ in the county who have an autism diagnosis, or who are waiting for assessment.

The aim of the service, which is funded by the NHS, is to provide advice and support to autistic adults who do not meet the criteria for help from specialist NHS-funded services, such as mental health and learning disability teams.

Help available from the Berkshire Adult Autism Support Service includes:

  • Adult Support Helpline
  • One-to-one Support
  • Autism advice workshops
  • Problem-solving and advice sessions for autistic adults and their parents and carers – initially at the Atrium coffee shop at Greyfriars Church in Reading town centre and in Maidenhead.
  • Activity groups
