Spectrum Enterprises CIC
We help autistic people
to set up a manageable business
to find and keep an interesting job
WHAT WE DO
— We Progress
We aim to help you stay calm and remain in control by progressing your business or employment ideas at a pace that you can handle. We keep in touch with you and when the time is right we put the information together for your Access to Work application.
— We Explore
You may be one of many autistic people, growing frustrated about not using your skills and talents. Together we explore your strengths, passions and ambitions.
— We Respond
Many autistic people have creative or technical brains which are full of great ideas. We help you to focus to make your planning more effective. Often autistic people can suffer from low self-esteem. Our mentors, job coaches and counsellors can help you to improve your mental health and wellbeing.
— We Help
Some autistic people feel that they don’t fit in to a traditional workplace. We help you overcome any fears of the unknown and support you to settle in. We work hand in hand with your employer.
— We Promote
We forge links with local employers who share our values and together we develop job opportunities for unemployed autistic people which plays to their strengths.
— We Simplify
Setting up a business or starting a new job can be overwhelming. We can help by breaking down your workload into manageable steps. We help autistic people and their employers to get the right support from the Access to Work fund. We deal with all the bureaucracy so that autism-related support and training is supported on the job.

We can provide practical support to help you to:
- Explore self employment

Nathan’s been self-employed since 2017
With the help of Pam and Spectrum Enterprises I have explored my interest in technology. Learning new skills and developing my confidence. As time has gone by, I have become increasingly independent. My mental health and self esteem have also been given a big boost.
My clients have become more confident
I have supported a number of clients with business planning and developmental support. As well as helping them manage their stress levels. I also enjoyed seeing the business owners make progress on their businesses and improve their mental health.
