Community Access

Autism Hampshire offers a comprehensive range of resources to service users in Hampshire including Southampton, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight.

We keep a range of information on available services throughout the Hampshire area and we are able to provide useful contacts to other support agencies in the field of autism as well as to parent support groups within Hampshire and Isle of Wight.

For help and advice, our Community Access Officers are available on the telephone, by email or by appointment at our Southampton and Portsmouth offices.
