Autism Alert Programme

Autism Hampshire is the new name for Hampshire Autistic Society.

I would like to offer you a warm welcome to our website. Autism Hampshire is constantly looking at ways that it can both influence and develop services that reflect the needs and wishes of people with autism and those connected to them.

Since its formation in the mid-1960’s, Autism Hampshire continues to work to understand the impact of an individual’s autism, and how we can shape services to take account of their needs.

Widgit Easy Read Custody Sheet  

It is estimated that 20-30% of all offenders in the UK have learning difficulties or disabilities that interfere with their ability to cope within the criminal justice system. 
 
In order to meet the specific needs of detainees. Widgit, Autism Hampshire and Hampshire Police Constabulary worked together to develop a series of “easy read” symbol sheets for use in custody.
 
Independent research by the University of Southampton found that the response to the use of Widgit symbol sheets in police custody was positive.
