Who are Autism Plus?

Mayfield is run as a social enterprise, under the ownership of the charity, Autism Plus. In 1986 a group of parents found there was little, or no, support for their children who were about to leave a specialist school. Coming together they established Autism Plus in the market town of Thorne, in Yorkshire to provide person centred support for adults and young people with autsim and learning disabilities. 

Over the years Autims Plus has grown into a leading Yorkshire charity, supporting people in residential and supported living and employment support.

Who are we?

Recent research has shown that over 70% of people with autism and learning disabilities want to work, however only 16% of people with autism are in full time employment. Autism Plus responded to this need by creating a range of exciting social enterprises to provide work experience and employment opportunities. 

Mayfield provides training and placements in manafacturing and engineering. Our workshop is a safe and supportive environment for people to develop work and employability skills and increase confidence in order to progress in paid employment.
