Resource Lending Service – Autism Hampshire

Why not try before you buy?

There are many resources available to purchase which may help people who have Autism. This service enables people on the autism spectrum to try a resource to see if it meets their needs before they purchase it. We also aim to raise awareness of assistive resources that are available.

Who can borrow?

The resources are available to borrow for children, young people and adults who are on Autistic Spectrum and who live in Hampshire, including Southampton, Portsmouth and Isle of Wight. A small deposit is required.

Items currently available to view or borrow:

Pocket weighted blankets for children, young people and adults, with various weights. Other weighted items such as lap pads, shoulder wraps, caps, wrist weights and weighted jackets. Compression vests (various sizes and styles), Timers and Ear defenders.

Items can be viewed and collected from the Autism Hampshire Portsmouth.  Our officers also take them to be viewed at a variety of groups and events across the county.
