Our residential service is Frank House, a detached house situated in Twigg Close, Erith. It is a 6-bed registered home and is staffed 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.
Our outreach service, known as Reaching Out, is based within Frank House and supports service users living in Bexley and the surrounding boroughs. The service is aimed at people living in their own homes or with family who need support in developing independent living and social skills.
This service is for adults on the autistic spectrum and their carers and is managed by the Trust’s General Manager who is a qualified counsellor. This, too, is based at Frank House.
“An Introduction to Autistic Spectrum Disorder” is offered to anyone working with or caring for those on the spectrum (teachers, carers, voluntary workers) who wish to learn something about the difficulties associated with A.S.D.
Membership of the group is open to adults with A.S.D. and/or mild learning disabilities who, because of their disorder, have difficulty in forming a social network and consequently feel isolated. The group meets approximately twice per month, usually within the Bexley area and activities are chosen by the members with staff acting as facilitators.
Drop-In Support and Advice Service:
The Trust has joined with a group of statutory and voluntary agencies within the borough to launch this facility for adults with A.S.D. and their carers. The Drop-In is offered on the 3rd Monday of each month (except for August and December), between 10 a.m. and 12 noon at the Betty Tod Centre, 35 Lesney Park Road, Erith
