We provide mentoring services to autistic adults in Leeds aged 18 and over with little or no support who would benefit from some independent, autism-specific support.
Our volunteer mentors are fully-trained and are able to meet with you and help set life goals. Some of our mentors are autistic themselves and have additional awareness of the barriers that can prevent people from fulfilling their potential.
Our service will aim to find you the best possible match. There will be introductory meetings and regular ongoing support for both the mentor and mentee.
Among the things our mentors can do are:
- Meet on a regular basis to help see how you’re doing, in a place that’s appropriate such as your home or a local cafe
- Listen to anything you need to talk about
- Create a mentoring plan together by helping you to identify and set life goals
- Signpost you to any relevant services/support
Please note that mentors are not the same as support workers.
