Autism Acceptance Week 2024

As part of Autism Acceptance Week, we want to create an art installation somewhere, such as the Forum, where we display a collection of postcodes, with the message starting:

‘One thing I want people to know about Autism is…’

We want YOU to finish that sentence.

Welcome to ASD Helping Hands

Our Mission

“We will support all service users affected by an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) regardless of age or what stage of life they are at. We aim to offer guidance, practical advice and support whether you are personally affected or you are a family member, carer, friend or professional. We will actively champion the rights of all people affected by ASD and aim to make a positive difference in their lives while delivering a service that is accessible, reliable and trustworthy.”

Our Services

We have a range of services that are there to support you, whether you are an autistic person (diagnosed or undiagnosed), a family member or a professional.


Our next Family Support group is :

The Norfolk Partnerships

The Norfolk Autism Partnership

The Norfolk Learning Disability Partnership

The Learning Disability Partnership are a group of people who live or work in Norfolk and want to make the lives of people with Learning Disabilities better.

Project Spot Light - Community Hot Spot

ASD Helping Hands have become the latest in a long list of organisations, business and charities opening their doors to everyone who is struggling to keep warm this winter with the rise in energy, food costs and the general price of living.

This has been made possible with support from Norfolk Community Foundation via grants from Norfolk County Council and the Surviving Winter Fund.
