Thinking Autism (formerly Treating Autism, a charity run entirely by parents, provides information and support to families and individuals affected by autism with the aim of improving their quality of life and reducing disabling symptoms of autism. We run Events across the United Kingdom that provides often-isolated parents a chance to meet and exchange information and experiences with other parents in a similar situation, as well as offering cutting edge information on treatment. We also create and publish information booklets and documents that are provided, free of charge, to the wider community, including other organisations, members of government bodies, and medical and research professionals. In addition, we run advocacy campaigns and liaise with policy makers and service providers to improve standards of health care for people with autism.
We help children re build self esteem and confidence if they have suffered or are currently suffering with any mental health issues, been bullied , groomed , abused and more. We hold workshops to learn trade skills so they can achieve certificates.

Thrive is the leading charity in the UK that uses gardening to bring about positive changes in the lives of people who are living with disabilities or ill health, or are isolated, disadvantaged or vulnerable. This process is known as social and therapeutic horticulture (STH) and uses plants and gardens to improve someone’s physical and mental health, as well as strengthen communication skills. Using gardening as a safe and secure way to develop someone’s ability to mix socially and make friends and to learn practical skills to help them be more independent, is now a proven therapy. Using gardening tasks and the garden itself, Thrive horticultural therapists build a set of activities for each gardener to improve their particular health needs and work on certain goals they want to achieve, including gaining qualifications in horticulture. Thrive works with academic research specialists, its own horticultural therapy professionals and other practitioners to build an evidence base which demonstrates and substantiates the gardening benefits people. With nearly 40 years' experience as the leading UK charity that uses gardening to help those whose lives are touched by disability, Thrive are experts at helping individuals and organisations to use social and therapeutic horticulture to help others. Our Training, Education and Consultancy team offer a range of services including one and two day courses, accredited courses in conjunction with Coventry University, bespoke training and consultancy services.
