Specialist support is provided to adults with high-need ASD, and staff work with customers to enable them to participate in activities and reduce levels of challenging behaviour.

The venue listed here is Outward’s main office in Tottenham Hale. However, our Supported Living Services for adults with Autism Spectrum Disorders are in the heart of Hackney, one just round the corner from Dalston Junction Overground station and the other close to Homerton Overground station.
