Creating a hub in the heart of the community, supporting young people with autism & their families
"We are two local parents who have children diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum. Driven by our desire to build a better future for young people with autism in our community, we created Express in 2012. We now run a very busy office in Tolworth, providing parent support groups, one to one support, EHCP support, a telephone helpline, therapy & siblings groups. We also provide work experience opportunities for young people on the autism spectrum."
"Express is an outstanding role model for diversity. We help local people appreciate the contribution that a young person with autism can make to our community, while also offering support for over 500 local families affected by autism who may feel isolated. With all our activities, we aim to engage the wider community and promote understanding and social inclusion, reducing isolation."
"Parents & Carers who attend our events & groups, tell us how much they appreciate our support. 'It means so much to know you're all there with patience and understanding - quite simply - you get it! Our art therapy & sibling groups are very successful - 'to see his confidence grow, has been amazing'. The next step is to set up a thriving community hub & café where young people with autism will be able to gain valuable social & life skills, Express themselves in an environment they enjoy."
