Hope GB was formed out of a desire and determination to improve the support and services available to children and young adults affected by autism, and their families.
We work closely with the council, schools, voluntary and community sector and communities in South East Wales to positively impact lives and realise the potential in individuals.
We support children, young adults and their families to overcome barriers and help them move forward. We believe that if children and young adults feel secure and have access to positive activities, mentoring and support, they can thrive.
We currently focus on delivery within Torfaen, and through our trained staff, volunteers and networks we offer:
- Targeted support for children and young adults affected by autism
- Programmes to get such young people into education, employment and training
- Autism-friendly Youth Clubs
- Autism support group for parents / carers of children and young adults with autism

- Facilitated Young Adults Social Group
- Collaborative stakeholder group to inform the provision of local government services
