About us

Training

Welcome

Welcome to the training division of Wokingham, Bracknell & Districts Mencap which was set up in July 2009. We specialise in low cost, high quality autism awareness training.

Our training is designed to meet the need created by the Autism Act 2009 and the December 2010 statutory guidance. This states that local authorities and the NHS should provide autism awareness training for all staff and additional specialist training for key staff.

Our training course comprises the use of presentation, exercises and group discussion which provide an increased awareness, knowledge and understanding of autism and a sound foundation of knowledge on which to build.

We operate on a commercial basis and generate funds for a variety of activities, including social groups for adults on the autism spectrum.

If you would like to talk to us about your specific training requirements please contact our office on 0300 777 8539 or email us and we will be pleased to help.

Our Philosophy

We always try to see things from your point of view. We believe that only by understanding your needs can we provide training solutions that continue to deliver long after the training is over.
