About Us

Autism Hampshire was founded by the late Mr and Mrs Philip White MBE and a group of local parents of children with autism in Southampton in the mid-1960’s. 

Over the years the charity has worked hard to provide high quality services that meet the diverse need of people on the autism spectrum in Hampshire and the surrounding area. We are now proudly able to provide autism focused Training, Domiciliary Care, Supported Living services, Mentoring and a Community Access Team that responds to an average of 12,000 requests for help each year. 

Autism Hampshire is an independent regional charity with our Head Office situated at 1634 Parkway, Solent Business Park, Whiteley, Hampshire, PO15 7AH.

It is our VISION to create a better future for people on the autism spectrum.

It is our MISSION to create opportunities, challenge perceptions, enhance choices and provide high quality services to meet the diverse needs of people on the autism spectrum.

Through our understanding of autism and the impact it has on the individual, we work with people to help them develop skills and strategies to gain greater control over their lives.
