Academy Living is a unique and progressive day service designed to support young people and adults with a diagnosis of autism and associated needs.
Based at two branches of The Orb in the communities of Porth and Morriston near Swansea, Academy Living offers continuous learning, hands-on, real-world, life and work skills, activities and optional accreditations. It is an alternative to a formal college placement, and can link in with schools as a transitional stepping-stone or act as a next step for school leavers.
The hub of the Academy Living programme is The Orb. Both branches provide a working shop, cafe, office and laundry, whilst the site in Porth also provides a kitchen. When the first branch was opened in Porth in 2015 it was featured on ITV Wales News and seen by 1.2 million viewers!
