Stories

Whether through supported living services, short breaks or our fun-filled day opportunities, we help people to learn new skills in a responsive and creative way. We help people progress into work and lead fuller, more independent lives, in a way that they are most comfortable with. Even if we just make a small difference in someone’s day – to us, that’s a positive outcome.

You may or may not know what it’s like living with autism or any other types of learning disabilities - at Aspire, we know that each individual is different. Here you can read about the people we have helped and their progress. These stories are from individuals who have used our services to benefit them in some way. Some have enjoyed short breaks of respite care, where others have taken part in a Shared Lives scheme, teaming up with our dedicated care providers. Each story will tell you a little more about the services they have received, and what it’s like to experience life with Aspire.
