Autism West Midlands

The School works with Autism West Midlands to host events on the school site as well as publishing advice, guidance and courses for parents and carers.

We employ 300 staff, delivering a wide range of services to people on the autism spectrum. As well as residential homes and supported living, we offer a range of training and education services; family support and a helpline service; and support people with autism into employment. Staff are encouraged to develop their skills and knowledge, and each year many of them gain additional qualifications. We are an Investor in People and hold the Customer Service Excellence award.
