Autism Hampshire Services


Information, Advice & Guidance Service: offers a wide range of free services to support individuals, families, and professionals as well as raising autism awareness within the local community. The service is available on the telephone (Monday to Friday 9.00-17.00) and by email for advice supporting adults, young people and children on the autism spectrum, their parents, carers and professionals. The service is available free of charge for people in Hampshire, Southampton, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight. The web-site also hosts a Local Autism Directory of services.

Spectra5 Autism Assistant App: The app is designed to help you when you need support from the police or emergency services. It can help you feel safer in situations that you find challenging and enable you to communicate more effectively. Available free of charge to download. Autism Alert Card - This yellow card should be carried at all times and shown to the police or emergency services in the case of an incident, enabling them to offer appropriate support and contact a named person listed on the back of the card.

Serendipity Social Groups: these groups are a great way for adults diagnosed with autism to meet in a supportive and non-judgmental setting. Each group is welcoming and encourages new members to join and participate in any way they feel able to. If a new member just wants to come to a group and listen to others, then that is respected and there is no expectation that every member needs to participate. Some groups are delivered online, and some groups are delivered in person. All groups are facilitated by a trained Volunteer Coordinator.

Specialist Mentoring Service: qualified Specialist Mentors offer 1:1 sessions with Higher Education students to empower them to handle engagement with their higher education, including counselling support. E-mail to book an initial appointment.

Rushmoor Link Community Directory

Welcome to the Rushmoor Link community directory. This is the place to find very local information about activities, groups and community services. Whether you are looking for support, to improve your health and wellbeing, socialise more, get active, learn something new or find a place to meet, Rushmoor Link is a good place to start.

How to get started. Choose a category. Information is sorted into categories by service or organisation name. The directory focuses on what is available locally through statutory, community and voluntary organisations.

Next step. Once you have hit the category button, scroll through the results. You can use the keyword search to narrow down the information (e.g., dementia, Aldershot, football).

It’s a simple system packed full of information. We recommend you do not use punctuation marks like commas (,) or apostrophes (’).
