Support service for autistic adults opens in Gravesend
A "VITAL" new support service for autistic adults has opened its doors in Gravesend.
The Windmill Centre, in Windmill Street, offers one-to-one personalised support to between 15 and 20 autistic people, with the aim being to increase their independence.
Activities including dance and drama will be offered, while important living and communication skills will also be developed.
The centre was formally opened by Gravesham MP Adam Holloway, the Mayor of Gravesham Councillor Derek Sales and the chief executive of the National Autistic Society, Mark Lever.
Mr Holloway said: "This is another very welcome addition to the services provided in Gravesham.
"The impact of this centre will be enormous and I hope wonderful for adults and their carers."
Mr Lever added: "The Windmill Centre will provide a vital resource for people living with autism in Kent and ensure that people with the disability are able to lead the lives they choose and flourish."
