Gloucestershire Autism Services

We are a group of parents who each have autistic children. We belong to an organisation called the Autism Network Group that works to improve services for autistic people and their families in Gloucestershire.  Parents have often said how hard it has been to find the services they have needed to help their children when they were younger and now that they are older.

We have put together this list to help autistic people and their families, living in Gloucestershire, find out about local autism services. We hope this makes it easier to find the services you need.

There are many other specialist, targeted and universal services that may be able to support you and meet your child's needs.  If you can't find what you are looking for here, please contact Family Information Service on 0800 542 02 02, 01452 427362 or familyinfo@gloucestershire.gov.uk.  They offer a brokerage service to help you find the right people or service to signpost you to.
