Rainbow Support and Services
Outreach Support - We provide tailor-made support packages to adults with
high functioning autism (including Aspergers Syndrome) to meet their individual
needs. These are funded either through personalised budgets or personal
contributions (including making use of DLA benefit).
Benefit advice – either 2 hour workshop: “How to complete a DLA or ESA claim
form” OR individual support with claims from an experienced benefit AS adviser
(has included support during DLA assessment meetings or at tribunals).
Group Activities/Social Groups:
Monday Meet-up - 1-5pm at The Old Library Centre, 65 Ombersley Street East,
Droitwich, WR9 8QS. £2 per session (includes refreshments). We offer varying
activities or the chance to meet up with a friendly group of others with high
functioning autism and carers of those with the condition.
Thirsty Thursday - We meet as an informal social group to chat, play darts/pool
or have a meal. The choice is yours! Every Thursday 6-8pm at The Copcut Elm,
Worcester Road, Droitwich, WR9 7JA. Family and carers welcome!
Monthly social Events – We run a range of activities or events on a monthly
basis, mainly on weekends or evenings for our members.

support to enable individuals to volunteer on a working farm and build skills in
preparation for a move into employment.
