Who we are
Respond exists in order to lessen the effects of trauma and abuse on people with learning disabilities or autism, their families and supporters. We do this through providing psychotherapy for people with learning disabilities, advice and support for staff and families, training for carers and professionals, education for people with learning disabilities. We also seek to influence generic services in order to make their services more accessible, to influence services to consider the psychological impact of living with learning disabilities or with autism, and undertake research in the field and to disseminate our findings.
Respond is based in London and supports people from across the United Kingdom.
