Welcome to Assert Brighton & Hove

Assert supports adults in Brighton and Hove with Asperger syndrome and High Functioning Autism

Asperger syndrome (AS) and High Functioning Autism (HFA) are forms of Autism which is a lifelong condition that affects how a person makes sense of the world, processes information and relates to and communicates with others.

AS and HFA are hidden conditions which means that you can’t tell that someone has them from their outward appearance. People with AS and HFA often have above average intelligence and the condition is known as a ‘spectrum condition’ as it affects people in different ways and to varying degrees.

Many individuals with the condition reach adulthood without a diagnosis or their needs being met as AS and HFA do not fit neatly into any category of Statutory Service Provision.

Assert aims to:

Support adults with Asperger Syndrome or High Functioning Autism and their parents, partners or carers by providing advice, information, resources, education, social inclusion, volunteering opportunities and support to improve wellbeing and reduce isolation.

We also seek to raise awareness of the condition, including the many positive aspects.

Assert is a member led organisation; both individuals and organisations can become members of Assert and support the work that we undertake.
