First Start provide a wide range of services for children and adults with an

Autism Spectrum Condition

Autism Therapy

Tower Project's First Start Autism Day Opportunities Service provide bespoke services specifically for people living with an Autism Spectrum Condition. Based on the Isle of Dogs, the service was developed in April 2004 and has attained accreditation through The National Autistic Society.

The main objective of First Start is to enrich the lives of young people and adults living with the condition or other related conditions, to support service members to achieve their full potential and aspirations. We adopt a holistic, self-centred approach whilst providing the daily services. The service accesses and uses a full range of local community amenities with the intention of including the service members within their own wider community. These services include local gyms, leisure centres, museums, parks and also local restaurants to name a few.

In 2022, the Tower Project were named the Tower Hamlets Speakers' Charity of the Year with his intentions focussed on helping First Start with development and funding.

It’s a pleasure to see service members again and to be able to provide full support to our members as well as their families.
