Pioneering Autism Centre opens its doors
15 August 2013

A pioneering centre for people with autism has now opened its doors in Cambridge. The Chitra Sethia Autism Centre is based at the Fulbourn Hospital site,  part of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT).

The new Autism Centre has been made possible thanks to the Autism Research Trust (ART) and the National Autistic Society (NAS) who received a grant from the N Sethia Foundation to redevelop the existing building.

The Autism Centre will be the new home of CPFT’s Cambridge Lifespan Asperger Syndrome Service (CLASS) clinic. The clinic has been providing specialist diagnostic assessments for adults who may have Asperger Syndrome or high-functioning autism for over 10 years. Now the CLASS clinic has a dedicated home. The clinic will move to the new Autism Centre in September 2013.

The Autism Centre is also an opportunity to develop support and opportunities for local people who have autism, including family support sessions, group meetings and activities.

There will be an official opening ceremony, taking place on Thursday 5 September.

On that day the centre will be holding an open afternoon between 2pm and 4pm for people to have a look round and find out more about the centre. If you would like to attend, please contact Andrea Grosbois at communications@cpft.nhs.uk or on 01223 726767.
