Autism in Mind (AIM)

AIM is neither a mental health service nor learning disability service. We are commissioned by NHS Sunderland Clinical Commissioning Group to provide low level preventative support. We are a solution-focused service that works with individuals and families to enable them to live as independently as possible, with the knowledge that if they need any further support, it is available.

We work with individuals and families helping them to resolve any issues or problems they have. We endeavour to stop things from becoming worse and reaching crisis point. AIM supports individuals in many different ways:

  • Providing a link to other services 
  • Making and attending appointments 
  • Support during benefit assessments 
  • Offering personal profiling for individuals
  • Self-awareness and understanding sessions
  • Supporting housing or accommodation issues

We also offer an adult’s autism outreach service to individuals on the autistic spectrum who are socially isolated and are unable to attend drop-in sessions, but who are in need of support.
