Support provided by GRS is defined by our organisational philosophy and an understanding of how each person's autism uniquely impacts on their lives. This perspective governs our staff approaches and flows through our support activities
All our services are person-centred and focused on achieving outcomes for the people that we support.
Our expectation is that people with autism can learn and develop and we support this process every single day. We will create unique services for people to enable them to have ownership of their own lives and future.
The Genesis Pathway
Change the Outcome
It is estimated that there are between 400,000 and 500,000 people, about 1% of the population with some form of autism.
People with autism will need to have access to a range of health and social care services, which will include some domiciliary care services. Some might need physical help with their activities of daily living, though this kind of support will usually not result from the autism, but from other conditions and disabilities.
