ASPIE

Charity description

ASPIE logo
ASPIE recognises the vulnerability of adults with
Asperger’s and is dedicated to supporting members from Worcester and surrounding areas by providing a safe haven and a unique service to reduce their isolation and instil for the first time a sense of social belonging and inclusion that is
vital for emotional wellbeing and survival.
Without a sense of belonging, depression and loss of self-worth are intensified depleting motivation and ability to fulfill one’s basic needs.

The Autism Act 2009 recognises the needs of adults on the autistic spectrum but implementation of the act by local authorities and health bodies in providing appropriate services is slow.
Professor Simon Baron-Cohen Director of Cambridge University's Autism Research Centre “Adults with Asperger Syndrome often suffer secondary depression due to social isolation, loneliness, social exclusion, lack of community services,under-achievement and unemployment. Their depression and risk of suicide are preventable with the appropriate support. This study should be a wake up call for the urgent need for high quality services to prevent the
tragic waste of even a single life.” www.cam.ac.uk/.../adults-with-asperger-syndrome-at-greater-risk-of-suicide
