Who We Are
Matthew’s Hub supports people aged 16 + who are autistic or awaiting a diagnosis previously known as Asperger’s Syndrome or high functioning autism in Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire.
Matthew’s Hub offers a range of services that help to build confidence, self-esteem and develop life skills, including enabling the take up of volunteering and workplace opportunities.
We support autistic people to access social activities, promote communication and social interaction skills, build friendships, and help to lessen social isolation.
Matthew’s Hub offers a warm and welcoming environment. We work with our members to provide individual support programmes designed to help maximise potential.
Our multidisciplinary team consists of a wide variety of highly qualified autism professionals with over 50 years combined experience; holding degrees in autism, psychology, teaching, and nursing to Masters level.

Background Of The Service
Matthew’s Hub was set up by FiND Charity for autistic people over 16 years of age with a diagnosis or traits. We began with a one of donation and £25,000 funding for three years from Deflog VQ in 2014.
Matthew's Hub is currently funded by various grants including the Big Lottery Reaching Communities. It costs around £120,000 per year to operate; this includes rent, utilities, insurances and staffing.
Donations will be gratefully received for general costs or for specific projects or work-streams.
