Slough SPACE advice project

Autism Berkshire is providing an enhanced advice service for 2018 to autistic adults and to parents and carers of children with autism living in Slough, as part of the SPACE (Slough Prevention Alliance Community Engagement) scheme.

SPACE brings together more than 40 local charities and organisations, led by Slough Council for Voluntary Services, to provide residents of the Borough of Slough with information and advice about all aspects of daily living. 

Autism Berkshire is providing autism-specific advice as part of the project.   

We run a weekly drop-in advice session for autistic adults and parents and carers of children and young people with autism at the YES Shop in the Queensmere Observatory Shopping Centre in Slough town centre every Wednesday during school terms, between 10am and 2pm. Just drop in between these times.

We also provide benefits advice appointments with our expert adviser Kevin Jackson at the YES Shop every Wednesday, offering help with claims for the following benefits:  

  • Carer’s Allowance 
  • Disability Living Allowance 
  • Employment & Support Allowance 
  • Jobseeker’s Allowance 
  • Personal Independence Payment
  • Universal Credit. 

Please note that appointments for benefits advice must be booked in advance by calling Kevin Jackson or Georgie Mitchell at the Autism Berkshire office on 01189 594 594, or emailing admin@autismberkshire.org.uk
