Autistic Spectrum Community Services

Positive Aspects is a service that aims to provide people on the Autistic Spectrum with their own versatile and uniquely tailored support.

About Positive Aspects

The service provides person-centred support with personalised support packages. We support people to reduce their social isolation, finding meaningful activity, and grow their independent living skills with the use of structure and routines.

Positive Aspects is a service delivered jointly by St Loye’s Foundation and the Community Care Trust (South West) Limited, and has been commissioned through Devon County Council and Devon Partnership Trust.

The service is made up of a team of practitioners from various different health, social care and education/vocational backgrounds.

Our support is based upon the recovery model and spell framework and we work to unlock peoples potential.

The service is available 7 days a week, throughout the day and in the evenings, with additional flexibility if required.

The service is delivered in Devon and Torbay.
