Respond Support Services for Trauma Survivors

Our vision is that all people with learning disabilities and autistic people who experience trauma are empowered to thrive.

We reduce the impact of trauma in the lives of people with learning disabilities and autistic people, by developing trusting relationships, through psychotherapeutically informed services.

Founded in 1991, Respond is a national charity providing therapy and specialist support services to people with learning disabilities, autism or both who have experienced abuse, violence or trauma.

We are committed to bringing about positive change for our clients and their families, enabling them to lead richer and more resilient lives.

We provide a range of trauma-informed services for children, young people, adults and professionals. These include psychotherapy, advocacy, campaigning and other support services which aim to prevent abuse and equip individuals and their families to come to terms with their experiences and live more positive lives.

We also provide specialist training, supervision, reflective practice and consultancy to equip agencies and providers in developing and delivering trauma-informed services.
