Who we are:
Hackney has a Social Worker within it's Integrated Learning Disabilities Service for adults with autism.
The Autism Social Worker works only with adults with autism who do not also have a learning disability but who may have social care needs.
What we do:
- Provide guidance, advice and signposting to appropriate services that may help with your well-being.
- Social care needs assessments where appropriate, including support for the whole family if required.
- Support with transitions for young people as they near the age of 18 and transfer into adult social care or other adult services
- Support with the development of Hackney’s offer of services and support to autistic adults
Autism advice sessions are a new weekly 1:1 information and advice service for anyone over the age of 16 who works or lives in Hackney, who either has a diagnosis of autism, works with or cares for someone who does.
Sessions are help on Fridays at Hackney Service Centre but will need to be booked.
