The Autism Hub in York: surviving lockdown and anniversary celebrations
Since October 2016 we have been providing people we support with an activity base from which they have been able to develop existing and new skills, make and maintain friendships and increase both their confidence and self-esteem.

Reopening the service

Our Autumn project
Since The Autism Hub re-opened, the people we support have been working on an Autumn themed mural.
They worked individually to respect the government rules, whilst also collaborating as a team on this project…
Here is the finished mural (pictured at top and below):
