I cannot thank you and Living Autism enough for the help and support you have given us in finding suitable accommodation for our son. He is an intelligent young man with complex needs and no suitable accommodation was available in the area in which we lived. Our local authority were unable to help, and as a family we felt very much alone in our search for somewhere suitable for our son. It was only when we happened upon Living Autism’s website, quite by chance, and found their ‘Tell us what you need’ section, that we were able to make progress. After describing our son’s condition we were given a number of suggestions of suitable places and from those finally chose one that we hope, in time, our son will be happy in. We have been supported, advised and encouraged by you, at Living Autism, throughout the process of getting funding and moving our son, and could certainly not have managed without it. It can be very stressful, not just for the autistic person himself, but for his family, and the fact that this was recognised by you, was very helpful indeed.
I would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you again for all the support you provided me over the last 2 years. You provided me with invaluable un biased support, guidance and information. All of this led me to make my final decision.Without your support, I would’ve struggled to gain the information that you offered. You took the time to always listen and advise accordingly. Nothing was too much for you, and you were always approachable, understanding and empathetic at all times. I have never met anyone that has so much experience as yourself, professional at all times and an understanding that I normally would only feel from another parent. I would strongly recommend your services to other services and friends and family. If there is anything that I can do to support your services, I would like you to ask. You have given so much to me and my family, I would like to do something in return. Your support has changed our lives, as we know that XXX is in one of the best possible services that can meet his needs. The sense of relief cannot be summed in words. I hope you are well, and thank you again from us all. You have touched mine and my children’s lives forever. After so much struggling over the years, without your help the last 2 years would have been far worst.
I can’t really put into words how much we appreciate Living Autism and your personal support and professionalism in helping us establish a Autism Specialist Care Provider for our son James. Clearly, the Local Authority needed help and guidance too as they had little knowledge of such autism care providers and we are sure that James would still be in the Hospital environment if it wasn’t for Living Autism’s network of approved care providers and your personal dedicated help and support. We also greatly appreciated your support and attendance at the regular review meetings at the Hospital with Social Services in which your knowledge and contributions were much appreciated and clearly contributed to James’ improved mental health over his 6 month stay at the Hospital.
Craig instantly understood our son’s complex needs and found a suitable place for him. Craig helped us liaise with everyone involved which was extremely helpful. We are so excited for our son to move into his new home. Words cannot describe how grateful we are to Living Autism.
Working with Living Autism has been a really positive experience. Not only did the training they provided for us receive great feedback they were responsive and proactive at every turn, helping us make the whole programme a resounding success
Living Autism are very professional people to work with and have an excellent understanding of our services and how they may be relevant for the individuals that they put in contact with us.
We have found Living Autism to be an excellent resource. The people there have a thorough, in-depth knowledge of autism and offer great support to Providers and families. Their network of contacts has meant a stream of referrals to us at Moorville. We will continue working in partnership with Living Autism going forward as their core values mirror what we want to achieve at Moorville Residential.
