Who we are, what we do and why we do it.

Established in the latter part of 2010, ASD Helping Hands is a registered charity founded by Julie who has over three decades of experience supporting autistic people and their families. Motivated by personal experience, Julie, who herself has a husband diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome and two sons, noticed a glaring absence of support services for those with Autism Spectrum Disorders in Norfolk, UK.


From modest beginnings with just two support groups for families in Norfolk, our organisation has since flourished into the largest charity dedicated to autism support in the region. Our comprehensive range of services includes personalised family support, ongoing support groups, residential holidays, activity days, and accredited training for both caregivers and professionals.


We pride ourselves on being inclusive, with no strict criteria for accessing our services. Whether you have a diagnosis, fall within a specific age group, or reside in a particular area, we welcome all who seek our assistance.


Staffed by a passionate team of volunteers who share a firsthand understanding of the challenges faced by individuals and families affected by autism, ASD Helping Hands operates independently of government funding. This autonomy ensures that our support remains impartial and unbiased.


Having assisted over 3500 families across Norfolk and Suffolk, we owe our success to the dedication of our volunteer team, all of whom have personal experience in supporting someone with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
