Description of impact
We aim to empower and support people in the Autism Spectrum to help them realise their full employment potential. The evaluation of our service has demonstrated significant increase in well-being and self-esteem in adults in the Spectrum.
Who is affected
Adults with autism
ACRE was developed to first, address the gap in provision for adults in the Autism Spectrum in terms of employment and, second, to facilitate job retention by developing tools to support employers in the process of making work adaptations tailored to their employees in the Autism Spectrum.
