Costs

Details
There is a ‘per person’ fee. Where a young person qualifies for support from Social Services this may be funded by the Local Authority. Alternatively this may be met privately. We will advise you on who to approach within your Local Authority if you don’t have a social worker. If you already receive Direct Payments from Social Services then you will be responsible for meeting the costs of the course.

Availability

Age Ranges
18-30 years old
with a diagnosis of autism
who want to work
Referral Details

Young people can self-refer.  Request an application form from the email address in the ‘contact us’ section. If you have a social worker please speak with them about this and if you don’t please contact your Local Authority and request an assessment.

If parents/carers/professionals know a young person who may be interested they must ask the young person to complete the application/to be supported to complete it. We also hold information sessions which are advertised on our website www.care-trade.org

A young person must have a diagnosis of autism, live within London, be able to demonstrate that they are ‘work ready’ and has a desire to gain paid employment.
