A group of passionate parents founded Autism Plus over 30 years ago. Bound by a common cause: wanting the very best for their children who all had autism. The children had grown up together at a specialist school but now approaching adult hood, they found there was no support. Together the parents established a small community for their children to live together in the market down of Thorne, near Doncaster. Three decades on as a leading Yorkshire charity Autism Plus are empowering more people every day to achieve more than they had dared to dream was possible.
Ampleforth Plus is one of six social enterprise businesses set up by Autism Plus. Autism Plus enterprises offer hands on experiences and training for people with disabilities in commercial businesses.
For people who are just starting out on their journey into work or those looking for new skills and experiences in other areas, the range of enterprises offer choices in vocational and administration placements. For anyone that is unsure of what they want to do, this offers a real, valuable ‘taster’ placement into different areas of work.
The purpose of the Morris Minor Tours scheme is to support individuals to learn valeting and detailing skills as they help prepare the car for hire.
