Devon Autism Alert Card

We are offering a card designed to help people with autism in Devon.

Carried by people, over the age of ten, with the condition, the card identifies its carrier as a person living with autism, which affects how they communicate with or relate to other people and the world around them.

It can potentially help any situation in which a person with autism finds it difficult to express themselves, or make themselves understood. And that’s more likely to happen in stressful situations.

Devon and Cornwall Police supports the the autism alert card, hoping that it will help their officers engage with people with autism in the community.

The Devon Autism Alert Card is free. The holder’s name and a unique identifying number are embossed onto it.

To get a card contact and provide your name and postal address or phone 07496 496651 and leave a message stating your name and address clearly.

Devon County Council uses a SEND flag to list services which define themselves as suitable for children and young people with SEND. These are part of Devon's SEND Local Offer. We recommend that you contact the service provider to make sure the service is suitable for your child or young person.
