Our autism specialism

Our support for autistic people is designed around your needs, interests and preferences and we encourage feedback from you about the work we’re doing.

We have a national group of autism experts, including two National Autistic Society (NAS) accredited assessors, so we are experts in supporting you to live the life you want – where, how and with whom you choose.

Whatever you’re doing, whether at home, going out, finding education or employment, we're committed to providing exceptional specialist autism care and support for you.

We’ll work with you to create your support plan and involve you in choosing your support workers, providing you with specialist staff who understand you and your autism. All our staff are trained in autism awareness and receive extra training as part of our NAS accreditation, so you can rely on us for safe, flexible and personalised support.

Partnership with National Autistic Society

Our unique partnership with the NAS and commitment to a large-scale accreditation programme provides assurance that our support is of the highest standard.

The NAS Autism Accreditation is an internationally-recognised process of support and development for those providing specialist services to autistic people.

We already have three care homes and one day centre accredited by NAS and an additional 33 teams are now working towards accreditation. Implementation of the accreditation programme is being led by Shaji Rajamony (Raj), an autism specialist Voyage Care manager and NAS assessor.

Commitment to quality

About 20% of the 3,500+ people we work with are autistic and we’re committed to providing the best quality care and support for them. We have a range of tools that empower our staff to tailor their support and really get to know each autistic person they work with.

We have sector-leading quality ratings. In England, 94% of our registered locations, including all our specialist autism services, are rated as Good or Outstanding* by the Care Quality Commission. That's 20% above the national average. In Scotland and Wales, we are 100% compliant with the Care Inspectorate and CSSIW's standards.

How you feel is important to us and we want you to be involved every step of the way.
