We support people with autism and Asperger syndrome within a range of different services.
Burgess Autistic Trust
On 1 April 2018, Burgess Autistic Trust, which was part of the mcch group, merged fully with mcch. The services stay the same, although they are now called mcch.
We have 2 registered care homes, one is in Leyton and the other is in Sidcup. Both services are registered with the Care Quality Commission, who monitor the quality of our support services. Many people with autism also access learning disability services, of which we have many spread across London and the South-East.
We have 4 supported living services in the Bromley area. Each service is different in size, supporting 3-8 tenants, and they are in community settings.
Jubilee Day service
We run a day centre in Bromley weekdays from 9am until 4pm. We run sessions to give you greater independence, like daily living skills, literacy and numeracy, cookery and healthy eating, arts and crafts and community activities, like swimming and bowling. All activity sessions aim to encourage accesss to the community and build confidence.
