Berkshire Autism Alert Card
BAS have been working in partnership with the Berkshire Autism Alert Card Working Group
(members listed below) to develop the Berkshire Autism Alert Card.
The Cards are available free of charge
to anyone with an Autism Spectrum Condition (subject to supporting documentation being sent, please see application form below).
The cards should be carried at all times and can be shown if the individual finds themselves in a situation where they cannot easily explain their behaviour.
The card gives some simple advice, the person’s name and emergency contact details. It will help those presented with a card, how to help the card holder and it will also assist you in identifying that you are dealing with someone with autism.
In order to accommodate the expected increase in BAS helpline calls, the Working Group decided to launch the card one Local Authority area at a time.
The card is being launched in each Local Authority area in Berkshire. Each launch is aimed to provide awareness of Autism and the Alert Card. Invitations are sent to local colleges, libraries, leisure centres, transport, Police, Probation Services, Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue, hospitals, businesses and many more.
Please work together with BAS and the BAAC Working Group to help support those with an ASC. Free information leaflets, posters, window stickers and advice are available on request.
