Autism Somerset is a well-established Community Interest Company, based in Somerset, for the people of Somerset.
We are now looking to upscale its impact, as the website, its social media presence, newsletters and training arm is being noticeably recognized as a reliable and up to date source of information.
We are a valuable signposting C.I.C, who partner with an Ascentis learning provider, offering accredited training in Autism, Mental Health, Mindfulness and emotional well-being.
Already revered among our associated service providers, we feel that the time is right to expand and look to work with organisations like yourself, who share a joint synergy to provide support for both disadvantaged and socially isolated families.
During the past six years, we have worked extensively with organisations like the National Autistic Society, local councils, the police force and many educational facilitators.
We provide a professional and knowledgeable service to other service providers within the fields of autism and mental health awareness.
Parents and carers have found the information on our website most helpful when making life enhancing decisions.
Our training arm, with it's courses written by us in-house can be personally delivered within any type of organisation. These courses, based upon autism awareness and good mental health and emotional well-being can be used as a source of personal development, accreditation and movement into a new career.
They can also be delivered commercially and corporately.
Our accredited courses could help the unemployed and those working in the voluntary sector to show prospective employers their intention for further personal development and to improve their chances of employment.
Upon achieving these qualifications, attendees would then have the opportunity to train as trainers themselves and deliver the courses within their own local community. This is offering real life opportunities to have a new career, especially those in the over fifties market, perhaps looking for a new work direction.
With new trainers working in areas of real deprivation this will directly benefit those with low self-esteem, poor mental health, the unemployed and those caring for others.
