Together Trust

The Together Trust is a voluntary organisation providing a wide range of care, special education and community services for children and adults with autism, learning difficulties and/or complex needs.

Inscape House School – We meet the needs of children and young people aged 4 to 19 years with autism spectrum conditions and related social communication difficulties.

Ashcroft School – For children and young people aged 5 to 18 years who have struggled to cope in other settings because of their individual barriers to learning.

At the Together Trust, we believe everybody deserves an equal chance in life. There are no exceptions. We provide a wide range of support services including fostering, residential, short breaks, community, family support and specialist educational support through our schools and college.

In addition to local authority funded places, our services can be purchased by families, carers, and service users over the age of 18 or their brokers via a direct payment, individual budget, individual service fund or personal/private funds.
