Autism Plus


Autism Plus was formed in 1986 by a group of passionate parents. Since then we have supported thousands of people on their journeys to more independence!

Autism Plus support people to take more control over their lives


We support adults and young people with autism, learning disabilities, mental health conditions and complex needs.

We were created by a group of parents in 1986 who were looking for the very best support for their children who were about to leave a specialist school. Once they reached 17, they found there was little or no support. Coming together they established Autism Plus in the market town of Thorne, near Doncaster, to provide person centred support in residential living, and learning for adults and young people with autism and learning disabilities.

Today, as a leading Yorkshire charity we are empowering more people every day to achieve more than they had dared to dream was possible. We employ over 450 people across the north of England in care support services, employment support and social enterprise businesses.
