The Autism Trust UK

The Autism Trust aims to create meaningful futures for young adults with autism. We provide a supportive environment fostering independence, building life skills, and generating community support and awareness of the capabilities of individuals with autism. Through ASDAN training, and functional work experience we equip young adults to work and enjoy the communities they live in.
Work experience is gained managing ‘Polly’s Place’ shop selling handcrafted items and art made by people with autism, their families, and supporters. In this environment young adults with autism learn retail, office, manufacturing, photography, social media, hospitality, housekeeping, gardening and independent living skills. The bespoke training is tailored to an individual’s needs, delivering specialist support and encouragement to gain skills and grow in confidence.
