The Autism Directory is a registered charity (no. 1143855) working to support autistic individuals and their families at a grass roots level in the community.
We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to create a better and more independent life for themselves, and with the right support and resources this can be achieved.
The Charity was founded in 2010 by Nadine Honeybone, a parent with a child diagnosed at age 2 with autism and a learning disability. She explains:
The Autism Directory was created because you should not feel that you are alone. There is help and support out there, but if you don’t know what or where it is, or how to access it then it is of no benefit. Since the charity was founded in 2010, our work has expanded from the online directory to include many more services.
We focus on Helping You Get The Help You Need, and we do this via our main services:
