Resources for Autism (RfA) provide practical services for children and adults with an autistic spectrum condition and for those who love and care for them.

We offer specialist holiday play schemes and term time play clubs for young people aged 5 to 19 years, wherever they are on the spectrum. One-to-one support is available and all staff are autism trained. Summer schemes tend to offer one week blocks based around a theme with shorter holidays offering one or two days. We do not provide transport to and from clubs but will help negotiate with local social services for help with this where appropriate. Schemes are run in various venues throughout Birmingham (subject to funding). They are age, ability and sometimes geographically specific and once your referral is received your child will be assessed, usually at a home visit, as to which group would best suit their needs.

Please note: Schemes are often over subscribed and it is therefore advisable to request a place early. There is a small charge which is means tested but no one is turned away for financial reasons. If you would like a place on future schemes, please fill in the main referral form (see website for details).
