Respite Care & Short Stay Breaks - Provided by Wirral Autistic Society

What do you do, and who for?

We know the importance for families who care for someone with autism to have a break. It allows families to do the ordinary things in life such as going out for a meal or having friends round for a drink.

Additional Information

We can offer an overnight stay or longer for the person with autism at The Ferns, our purpose-built short stay facility, which opened in 2010.

The Ferns can also be used on a half day or full day basis.  We can also offer you a break based in your own home, if this suits your requirements better.
