Face masks and social distancing: Due to the rising prevalence of COVID-19 in our communities, we strongly encourage healthcare staff and visitors to wear a face covering in all of our settings, particularly in clinical areas and those with high footfall. Please exercise a common-sense approach and personal responsibility to help us reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our patients, workforce and services. In addition to wearing a face covering, it is important to continue to maintain social distancing where possible. Thank you for your continued support and co-operation at this time. We continue to regularly review our advice based on prevalence in our communities and our hospitals.

About us

The Integrated Autism Service (IAS) supports autistic adults and the parents/carers of autistic children, young people and adults in Western Bay.  Western Bay includes Swansea, Neath Port Talbot and Bridgend. 

Adults, parents, carers and professionals will be able to refer to the Integrated Autism Service.

The Integrated Autism Service provides direct support for autistic adults. We also provide advice, support and signposting for parent carers of autistic children, young people and adults.

Any adult can request an assessment if they think they have autism.

Autistic adults can access the service for:

  • support to understand Autism
  • post diagnostic course
  • short-term direct support
  • support to access other services which may include employment, education, health, leisure and recreational activities.

Professionals and other services can contact the IAS for:

  • consultation, advice and support, for example, with GP’s, universities, colleges, employers and leisure services.

The service will not provide:

  • direct work with children
  • emergency or crisis intervention
  • respite care
  • rapid response
  • diagnostic assessments for people under under 17 years and 9 months
  • prescription or monitoring medication
  • long-term input or care management.

Other services are available to help with these issues.

The Integrated Autism Service is unable to provide direct support to those already in receipt of care and support from services which include Secondary Mental Health, Learning Disability and Social Services.  In these instances the IAS will support the professionals working in these areas.
