Hampshire Autistic Society – is now known as Autism Hampshire.

“The new name is seen as a natural evolution of the charity’s branding to better reflect a continued focus on autism and to remove the perceived exclusive nature of the term ‘society’.

They continue:

“The values, commitment and focus on autism provision across the county and surrounds will remain.”

It is estimated that there are 18,000 people on the autism spectrum in Hampshire.

Autism Hampshire work with over 100 famines in offering support and services such as an adult day service and an outreach department.
