DASH is an independent local charity whose mission is to improve the quality of life of adults of working age with Aspergers and other high functioning Autistic Spectrum Conditions living in Swindon.

Our primary aims are to:

  • Raise awareness of Autism;

  • Promote and enhance access to assessment and diagnosis, post diagnosis support, welfare and care, housing, education and employment;

  • Research, promote and help to deliver a local model of support and services.

In this way we will help people with Autistic Spectrum Conditions to enjoy safer, healthier, more sociable, more productive and happier lives.

On this page you can access latest news, upcoming events as well as employment and volunteering opportunities. The Activities & Services tab provides more details of our social groups and Autism Matters, DASH's information and advice service.

Noticeboard

URGENT AND IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL DASH SERVICE USERS

Due to the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic we have taken the decision to suspend all and face-to-face groups and sessions. All social groups, Tuesday chat group, walk-in sessions and face-to-face meetings will be suspended until further notice. If you have an existing meeting arranged, your adviser will contact you to discuss ways we can help.

We will continue to provide support via telephone and email; I would ask for your patience and understanding during this period.
