At MAIN we support people, not 'cases' or 'numbers'.

MAIN was established in 2002 as an after school service for children with autism in Middlesbrough. We now provide services for children and adults, with a range of disabilities, throughout the North East.

MAIN exists to offer advice and services tailored to individuals with disabilities and their families, to raise their aspirations, empower themselves, and to have the confidence to 'wear the T-shirt with a smile'.

These services include clubs for all ages, PA support services, alternative education, and advice and guidance. MAIN also offers a variety of services including training and courses for professionals and parents/carers.

Our team includes dedicated parents, who have each individually adapted to living with children with disabilities in various forms. The MAIN team has the skills, experience and motivation to offer first hand support and advice to people of all ages with additional needs.

Our ambition is to change society's perceptions of disabilities, and to increase understanding of the challenges and opportunities that living with a disability brings.
