Autism Alert programme

The 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.


Autism Alert Car Card

Autism Alert car cards can be provided to place in the bottom left hand corner of the car windscreen. In the event of an incident, emergency services would be able to identify the person on board who is autistic.

In addition these can be placed strategically in your home so that if emergency services attend you at home, they are aware that someone in the house is autistic.
