Charity information

SAFE Essex (Supporting Asperger Families In Essex)

SAFE is the only charity in Essex that specifically supports individuals with AS/HFA. There are various organisations across the county which support people who are autistic, but there are none that have the experience and expertise developed by SAFE over the last twenty years. With ever increasing cuts in statutory services, SAFE is recognised by Health, Education and Social Care professionals in Essex as one of the few avenues of help for individuals and families affected by AS/HFA.

Founded 1997
