How we train our staff to support you

Through involving you in choosing your support workers and using values-based recruitment we ensure you are supported by well-trained staff who understand you and your autism.

We have an autism learning and development pathway and all staff, regardless of their role, receive autism awareness training.

Support workers and managers receive various advanced levels of training tailored to the needs of the people they support. This includes positive behavioural support for all support workers through to a level 3 diploma in autism for those providing specialist autism care and support.

Our support to autistic people follows good practice principles and our support teams have oversight and support from:

  • Our experienced managers and peers – through our autism information hub
  • Our autism professionals group – a forum for sharing best practice and reviewing outcomes
  • National Autistic Society – accessing specialist training and support throughout the autism accreditation process
