Charity information

Spectrum (The Devon & Cornwall Autistic Community Trust)

Spectrum provides residential, respite and educational support to children and adults with an autistic spectrum disorder (autism, Asperger's syndrome, challenging behaviour). Based in Cornwall, Spectrum currently has several homes and a small special school, together with a head office, and aims to provide person-centred care programmes designed to meet individual needs.

Our care staff receive ongoing, specific and thorough training to meet the needs of this group of people, and our aim is to encourage and develop self-management of the condition as far as possible, always within a framework of careful support and within a setting that matches family home environment.
