About Us

Autism Hampshire was founded by the late Mr and Mrs Philip White MBE and a group of local parents with autistic children in Southampton from the late 1960s. See Autism Hampshire: A History for more important events in the history of the charity.

Over the years, the charity has developed and delivers high quality services that meet the diverse needs of autistic people in Hampshire and the surrounding area. We provide autism-focused Training, Domiciliary Care, Supported Living services, Mentoring and an Information, Advice and Guidance Team that responds to an average of 12,000 requests for help each year.

It is our VISION to create a better future for autistic people.

It is our MISSION to create opportunities, challenge perceptions, enhance choices and provide high quality services to meet the diverse needs of autistic people.

Through our understanding of autism and the impact it has on the individual, we work with people to help them develop skills and strategies to gain greater control over their lives.

Good Governance Code

Good governance is fundamental to a charity’s success. It enables and supports a charity’s compliance with the law and relevant regulations. It also promotes a culture in which everything works towards fulfilling the charity’s vision.

About this Code: This Code is a practical tool to help charities and their trustees develop high standards of governance. Read more about this Code, using this Code to review governance and extra advice from our steering group partners.

The Code refresh: The Code steering group refreshed the Code at the end of 2020. Visit the Updating the Code page to learn about the changes.
