Mission Statement

Jigsaw+ is dedicated and passionate in its commitment to support adults with autism to make positive, personal choices that enhance their wellbeing, independence and social inclusion.



Parent company, the Jigsaw Trust, was founded in 1999 by a group of parents who wanted to create a school that met the needs of their young children with autism.

The primary objective of the Trust is to improve the lives of those affected by an autistic spectrum disorder through the provision of high quality, accessible, educational, vocational and wellbeing services.

The newly formed Trust created Jigsaw CABAS® School which provides primary and secondary education for up to 60 pupils aged 4 – 19 and is rated as ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted across all areas.

The next stage of development for the Jigsaw Trust was to expand its range of services to include adults.  Jigsaw+ was founded in 2012 and officially opened the doors to the Centre for Lifelong Learning in April 2013.
