What are Adult Community Services?

Looking to make new friends? Start a new adventure? Learn a new skill? If so, we would love to have you join us. Aspect’s Adult Community Services provides you with the opportunity to have fun while trying new activities and learning new skills within the community.

We all need a place where we feel good, which helps us thrive and grow in our own time and space. Our community centres are that place for adults on the autism spectrum. As we get to know our adult participants, we quickly become a strong co-partner in recommending and supporting what they need and want, now and into the future.

Our current broad variety of activities and fun day programs for Autistic adults are fantastic and well loved, but it’s how we find, and even create, new activities based on your family member that makes us pretty special.

There’s nothing better than turning up every day and seeing friendly, familiar faces ready to get the day started. Our adult participants feel comfortable and safe being in a group environment that very quickly becomes their home-away-from-home. Our families and carers have peace of mind knowing that when they’re not with them, our team is the next best thing.

We support independence

A joyful life is an independent life. We love working with our adult community to build confidence and new skills. Whether it’s learning to cook a meal, catch transport or hang a jacket on the clothes rack, we celebrate every achievement equally.

How good is it when people get you? If you don’t know what that feels like, just step through the front door of any one of our autism-specific adult community centres. With a caring, professional team of highly trained employees, we know how to bring out the best in adults on the autism spectrum.
