Aspire – Romsey Mill

Back to Support

Aspire provides friendship, groups and activities for autistic children and young people. It is a programme run Romsey Mill, a local charity for families, children and young people.

Nicolas talks about what Aspire means to him:

Run by Ruth and her team, Aspire supports autistic children and young people living in Cambridge City and South Cambridgeshire. Aspire activities and groups reduce social isolation and improve the lives and mental well-being of the young people who attend.

“From the moment he started attending he was happier and seemed to carry less of a burden, he seemed lighter somehow, like he’d finally found a place where he belongs and seems a little less lonely in the world.”  A parent of a young person attending an Aspire group

If you would like more information or to refer a child or young person to Aspire, please contact [email protected] or call the Romsey Mill office on 01223 213162.

To access the Aspire programme a child needs to:

  • have an autism diagnosis;
  • be in mainstream school, in Year 5 or above (up to age 18);
  • live in the City of Cambridge or South Cambridgeshire.

Romsey Mill receives a high number of enquiries and referrals for Aspire and operates waiting lists for many of the groups.

* Talk to the Aspire team about funding for attending these groups as circumstances vary.
