PLEASE NOTE WE ARE UNABLE TO TAKE ON ANY MORE NAVIGATOR PROGRAMME ENQUIRES AT PRESENT.

THIS SERVICE IS TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED UNTIL WE ARE ABLE TO ACCESS MORE FUNDING

WE WILL RECOMMENCE IT IN THE NEAR FUTURE. THANK YOU

The ACC is run by a small group of unpaid volunteers and is not commissioned or funded to provide services. We try our best to link individuals who wish to explore issues related to their Autistic identity with an ACC Navigator as quickly as we can, however we are experiencing high and increasing demand for this free peer support offer. Please note, we currently have a waiting list which means you will not immediately be allocated a Navigator; we will do our best to accommodate you as soon as we possibly can, however this may be some time.

In the meantime, all members are welcome to join our Facebook group The Autistic Community of Cornwall, where you are able to chat with other members.

 

 

 

 

The Autistic Navigator Programme: Support for Autistic Adults

  • We are not able to support with Mental Health issues.

  • The programme is run by unpaid volunteers who are all Autistic

  • It is not meant to meet needs where there are gaps in services provided by the NHS and local authority.

This programme is intended for:

  • Individuals who have the capacity to understand its aims 

  • Ability to request being included on their own behalf.

The ACC does not accept referrals from third parties, such as mental health services or local authority social care, though we can discuss how individuals can be supported to do this with individual case workers. 

How the Navigator Programme works:

  • Individuals contact the ACC via the Navigator email

  • We arrange an initial meeting to explore whether it is the right programme for the individual.

  • If the Navigator Programme is to be accessed, we place the individual upon a waiting list. 

  • A Navigator is located and makes contact with the individual

  • Both decide upon a safe and respectful method of interaction and/or meeting place

Safety

All of our Navigators are carefully selected, have a police check, (Enhanced DBS).
