Autism Bedfordshire

Helping break down barriers for autistic people

Autism Bedfordshire is one of the hundreds of community organisations to which Luton Rising has contributed £180m in total over the last 25 years. Their services help break down the barriers to social participation for autistic people and their families by providing places where they can go and feel comfortable, accepted and not judged by society.

With the encouragement and support of specialist trained staff, they help autistic people build their confidence, self-esteem, and social skills through taking part in social activities and mixing with other people.

They also help autistic people to develop practical skills and independence which will improve their prospects in life and help them be part of the community, and to enjoy fulfilled and rewarding lives.
