CHRISTCHURCH-based autism charity, Autism Wessex, has bought a new home for adults.

Greenways in Highcliffe will be home to four adults with autism and other difficulties.

It is the charity’s eighth residential home and will be renovated to ensure it provides a specialist environment.

The charity has a growing portfolio of adult residential properties in the area.

Jon Wyatt, director of Community Wessex, said: “While Greenways is already built to a high specification, we need to make some adaptations to ensure it meets the specific requirements of those who will live there. It needs to be safe and secure, while also enabling independence to provide the best environment for those living there to reach their potential.”
