IAS One-to-One Support

The IAS offers support to autistic adults and those who support them. If you are autistic or if you are a parent or carer of an autistic adult and would like to find out more information, please contact us. If you are a professional and would like to refer someone, please refer by email on, by phone on 07970 647 820, or in writing.

The IAS takes a stepped approach to care. For some people, information and advice provided on the phone or by email will meet their needs. For other people, it may be appropriate to access an individual appointment.

These appointments will be offered in our base in Penarth, online or on the phone. At that initial appointment, we ask questions to find out a person’s needs. The outcome of that appointment may be: a recommendation to access other services; support to links with  other services; to attend IAS groups; or it may be that the person is offered some time-limited, goal focussed support.

It is not possible, or appropriate, for the IAS to provide all the support that may be required for autistic adults. The IAS is specifically funded to provide support to those people who do not meet criteria for other services, for example, mental health services or learning disability services. If someone is supported by other services, the IAS can provide consultation and joint working, where appropriate.

If people have any questions about whether a referral is appropriate, the IAS would be very happy to discuss this so please contact us on
