Aurora Meldreth Manor School

Meldreth Manor supports children and young people age 6-18 years who have complex learning difficulties and is one of the few schools in the country that is also able to support complex health needs and associated difficulties. These may be as a result of conditions such as cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury, degenerative conditions or autism requiring a specialist approach.

Young people may have multiple disabilities, including sensory and physical impairments and benefit from specialist facilities designed to meet their needs. The highly skilled team of teaching, care and clinical staff take a holistic approach that considers physical, emotional, social, sensory and educational needs within a waking day curriculum.

The support provided enables each young person to engage and progress at their own level within a living and learning environment that is all about enriching individual lives and helping everyone to achieve their full potential as they reach adulthood.

Our aim is quite simple, to empower young people to grow in their own unique and inspiring way.

Autism Bedfordshire

Autism Bedfordshire is a charity that provides services to individuals with autism, their families, carers and professionals across Bedfordshire. Our key purpose is to provide emotional and practical support as well as information, advice, guidance and advocacy.

The outcomes our services deliver (as evidenced by our monitoring and evaluation) are:

1. Individuals with autism and their families will feel less isolated.
2. Individuals with autism will develop confidence, self-esteem, communication, social and life skills.
3. Parents will feel less stressed and better able to cope.
4. Parents will improve their knowledge about autism and the services available.

Autism is a lifelong disability so our membership reflects this as we support both children and adults. We run countywide services for our members including:

- family support groups (L.O.A.F. - Loads of Autistic Fun)
- youth groups (Wanted Fun)
- summer activity schemes
- extended services (e.g. trampolining, golf and swim sessions)

- social groups for adults with autism
- parent training
- autism awareness training for professions (levels 1, 2 and 3)
- a helpline service (01234 350704) with trained and experienced team members on hand to answer calls (anything from services enquiries to crisis calls).

Autism Bedfordshire’s members can access books and other resources from our library and will receive our bi-monthly newsletter giving details about our services and other groups and activities that may be of interest. We also communicate information to members and our staff through e-newsletters. We have a website that anyone can access and we are on Facebook and Twitter.

Bedfordshire Youth Offending Service

The aim of Bedfordshire Youth Offending Service (BYOS) is to reduce offending and re-offending of young people. The Youth Offending Service is made up of representatives from the police, probation service, social services, health, education, drugs and alcohol misuse. Because the service incorporates representatives from a wide range of services, it can respond to the needs of young offenders in a comprehensive way. The Youth Offending Service identifies the needs of each young offender by assessing them with a national assessment (ASSET). This helps to identity specific problems that make the young person offend as well as measuring the risk they pose to others. This enables the YOS to identify suitable programmes to address the needs of the young person with the intention of preventing further offending.
