Like many other Charities and Service Providers Autism Anglia is affected by the challenges presented by the Coronavirus. As a provider of 24 hour care and support and a school as well as family and community based support we are working around the clock to ensure that we can continue to provide services that keep vulnerable people safe and well. Everyone should remember that we have a shared responsibility to follow the guidance in order that we can reduce the impact of this virus.

As ever, our staff and managers are showing extraordinary dedication to do everything they can to keep homes and services running. Quite rightly there is a significant focus on health services but it is important for people to understand that school and support staff work through the day and night to ensure that the students and adults with autism we support, often with complex needs, are able to keep attending school or live safely in their homes.

I would like to thank every one of our staff for everything they are doing at this current time.

If the situation continues to get worse we may be looking out for temporary staff, Volunteers or people just to help out generally over the coming weeks. If you think you would like to help us in any way please contact me at [email protected]
