Autism Berkshire

Autism Berkshire is running online services to help autistic people and their families in Bracknell Forest during the coronavirus pandemic.

The charity’s autism advice Helpline and its Benefits Service are continuing to operate to advise autistic people and their families.

And new pages have been added to the website, with links to advice and resources for families and fun and educational things for people of all ages to do online and offline while they are spending so much time indoors.

Full details of all the charity’s services during the coronavirus shutdown and how to contact its team are available at

 Autism Berkshire was set up in 1990 by parents of children with autism, autism-related problems and challenging behaviours. We now have about 500 members, including individuals, families and professionals.

The main aims of the charity are to provide a comprehensive advice and information service for parents, carers and professionals.

You can call our helpline 10am to 1pm from Monday to Friday on 01189 594 594 or email our advisers at

We support parents and carers of children on the autism spectrum or who are waiting for a CAMHS autism assessment, and runs a benefits advice service and leisure activities.

Autism Berkshire also provides training to parents, carers and professionals in a variety of areas to raise awareness of autism and issues associated with autism.  

The charity issues the Berkshire Autism Alert Card and manages the scheme on behalf of the alert card working group.
