Welcome to Wirral Autistic Society: Community and Vocational Services
Community and Vocational Services are about offering people with autism meaningful, realistic and achievable training, on the job work experience and valuable life skills.
These structured, person centred programmes offer the necessary communication strategies and support plans, enabling the person to develop independently, safely and confidently. They offer fantastic opportunities for people with autism to develop essential work and life skills and reach their full potential.
We have ongoing vacancies in our community and vocational services and can offer flexible opportunities throughout the week up to a full five day programme.
Based in several locations in Wirral, our services are extensive and offer a full range of activities.
