Want to thrive in your life? Our Connections & Funding team are here to help you achieve your goals. (This was previously known as Needs Assessment Service Coordination (NASC) and Local Area Coordination).
Youth+ accommodates 16 – 25-year-olds with Asperger’s, autism or general social difficulties who are able to manage their own behaviours and have a reasonable level of independence and communication. This group is not suitable for non-verbal individuals or for those who require 1 on 1 support. We work in groups to develop independence, extend social circles, build friendships, and gain a sense of belonging. Essential personal and life skills, such as effective communication, working with others, and increasing cooking and other independence skills are developed through activities, games and discussions. We offer sessions designed to develop social and life skills within a safe environment, as well as spending time in the local community, visiting places such as restaurants, shops and game centres.
