About JigsawPlus

Mission Statement

JigsawPlus 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.

History

Parent company, the Jigsaw Trust, was founded in 1999 by a group of parents who wanted to create a specialist provision within Surrey 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 continues to provide 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 a Post-18 provision and JigsawPlus was founded in 2012, officially opening its doors to its Centre for Lifelong Learning on Dunsfold Park in Surrey in April 2013.
