They provide help and advice about autism and they have an impressive range of services.

 These include mentoring services to autistic adults in Leeds who have little or no support and would benefit from some independent, autism-specific help and advice.

Their volunteer mentors are fully-trained and are able to meet with you and help set life goals. Most of AIM's mentors are autistic themselves and have additional awareness of the barriers that can prevent people from fulfilling their potential.

AIM also run an Autism Hub, where they host workshops, provide useful advice on a range of issues affecting autistic people in the Leeds area and act as a source of information on everything from employment to benefits.

AIM have also been run a number of autistic-led groups, both online and at their hub. 

AIM's services are all free at the point of use.
