Autism Assistant App and Alert Card – Autism Hampshire

Autism Alert programme

Our Autism Alert programme supports autistic people, should they find themselves in any type of contact with the police or other emergency services. The wallet card is provided free for any Hampshire resident who is autistic.

​Autism Alert Card

This is a yellow card which should be carried at all times and shown to the police or emergency services in the case of an incident, enabling them to offer appropriate support and contact a named person listed on the back of the card.

Spectra5 Autism Assistant App

The app is designed to help you when you need support from the police or emergency services. It can help you feel safer in situations that you find challenging and enable you to communicate more effectively.

Spectra5 can also be helpful in your daily life including work, education and leisure. For a few ideas of how and when your app might be useful you can watch our short animation, which was created for us by James Arrow, a talented animator who also has autism.

Autism Hampshire and their technical partners Mpro5, provide the Spectra5 Autism Assistant App free of charge for Autistic adults (18+) who live in Hampshire, including Isle of Wight, Portsmouth and Southampton.
