Autism Alert Programme

Our Autism Alert programme supports autistic people, should they find themselves in any type of contact with the police or other emergency services. The wallet card is provided free for any Hampshire resident who is autistic.

​Autism Alert Card

This yellow card should be carried at all times and shown to the police or emergency services in the case of an incident, enabling them to offer appropriate support and contact a named person listed on the back of the card.

To apply for an Autism Alert Card please phone 02380 766162 or email

If you don't live in Hampshire you can find out what Autism Alert Card schemes operate in your area by visiting the National Police Association website.

Autism Alert Car Card

We advise that the yellow Autism Alert car card is placed in the bottom left hand corner of the car windscreen. In the event of an incident, emergency services would be able to identify the person on board who is autistic.

In addition these can be placed strategically in your home so that if emergency services attend you at home, they are aware that someone in the house is autistic.

For more information and how to apply, please contact the Information, Advice and Guidance team via 02380 766162 or email
