ASGMA Autism Lifeskills Project

We began the Life Skills project in 2010 in response to the demand from our members for individual 1-2-1 support. Working closely with each individual, we develop an individualised programme of activities and support. The programmes are designed to provide the confidence and skills that our members need to enjoy an independent  life.

Through life skills we are able to provide support that enables people to:

  • Live independently
  • Settle into new accommodation
  • Travel Independently
  • Access services in the local area
  • Find and maintain employment
  • Access appropriate educational opportunities.

All Life Skills support is completely tailored to individual need and circumstances. We currently provide approximately 200 hours per week of support.

Referral Details

The project works with people anywhere on the spectrum as long as they are verbal, without profound physical disability and can cope in 1-2-1 or small group environments.

The project is simple to access and people with an autistic diagnosis and funding such as Direct Payments or an Individual Budget are able to self-refer themselves to the Lifeskills Project to access its services. The project will also take referrals from Social Workers, Care Managers and other healthcare professionals.

For more information on the Lifeskills Project or to make a referral, please speak to the Direct Services Manager, Peter Halliwell, e-mail or click on the Life Skills Project Brochure.
