Work Placement

Written on 1st August 2012 by Hoffmann Staff

The Hub is a day service for adults with autism spectrum conditions (ASC) based in Wood Green, north-east London and we have been providing support to adults with autism and related syndromes for nearly 60 years. We have accepted students on placement and volunteers from major universities within our catchment area for many years, areas in which they have been successful are Art Therapy and Art in the Community.    

 

For reasons that are not fully understood, the proportion of females to males in the autistic population is around 10% and our services have been directed primarily at males. About 3 years ago we began a fashion and textile project under a young designer who has now moved on, to provide a fashion and design service for female service users. It was a highly successful initiative and led to the design, cutting and manufacture of garments of all kinds by our service users, eventually including males as well as females and expanding into additional items like cushions and bags.

 

We can offer insight into ASC and associated disabilities for placements of any length, with supervision. We have a large supply of fabrics and two sewing machines, a light and airy studio in which to work and a team committed to improving the lives of people with autism. For an appointment for an accredited placement or paid work experience placement and further information or an introductory visit please e-mail ian@hoffmannfoundation.org.uk  or phone 0208 8818 638 between 9.00 am and 16.00 pm.
