Autism Services

As part of our service, we provide specialised support for adults with autism, on a 1:1 or 2:1 staffing ratio based on the individuals needs profile. Our services are based across Glebe Cottage and Woodgate (Loughborough) and The Old School Shepshed.

Each person is supported to achieve and develop on personal goals and skills through a needs lead, person centred programme of activities. We focus on encouraging the development of existing skills whilst offering new and varied experiences.

We are community based and access many varied locations within the town and further afield including tailored fitness programmes at the gym, tennis, boccia, and can facilitate attending colleges and courses of interest. We also attend social activities like bowling, the cinema, and discos. We support people within work placements, enabling development of confidence and skills to seek volunteering and work opportunities. Within the day we try to encourage independent living skills, and shop and cook sessions. We will be happy to try to facilitate other activities suggested or requested where possible.

We work alongside a variety of professionals including S.A.L.T,  Social workers, teachers, Autism Outreach, NHS professionals and support the development of communication and behaviour support plans.

We meet regularly with parents and carers and attend all reviews.

We recognise that transitions are important and can be a difficult time for the individual, we work closely with the other establishments to ensure that the transition into or out of Glebe House services are as seamless as possible.

Services generally run from Monday to Friday 9am – 3pm with some flexibility.
