Charity information


Cintre is a dynamic support service tailored to adults with Autistic Spectrum Disorders, Learning Difficulties and Mental Health issues. Its foremost aims are to support those in need to leading an independent life.

Founded 1980

  • Mission statement

    A ‘Cintre’ is a tool used by architects when building an arch. It supports the construction until the arch is capable of holding itself independently. In this way, we at Cintre, provide the necessary support to vulnerable people to maximise their independence and their ability to stand strong, resilient, and unaided.

    We follow a unique ‘Continuum of Care’ strategy and imbed it as a key concept to how our support is delivered. The strategy assists in delivering seamless transitions from one Cintre service to another. It provides the appropriate services as the service users’ needs dictate. The strategy is in place to prevent individuals being moved from provider to provider, and therefore allows us to deliver a consistent, reliable and trusted service.
