Do you know someone living with Autism?

Being autistic does not mean you have an illness or disease. It just means your brain works in a different way from other people.

Every individual with autism is different. Some people are able to learn, live and work independently, while many have learning difficulties that require specialist support.

If you or someone you know needs support, just know our care assistants at Bluebird Care Rotherham are here for you, if and when you need them.

At Bluebird Care Rotherham, we support people living with Autism and can support individuals to live well at home with their diagnosis.
