“After moving to Pericles from his previous caring set up in Cornwall, and after six years of regularly attending the varied daily activities and workshops and a full Pericles social life, our middle aged brother with Autistic needs has such a deeply, satisfying life.  He is more relaxed, happy, fulfilled and has a sense of calm that makes him more able at times to verbally express himself than he has ever been able to in his life, it’s remarkable.”

“After 30 years of living at a progressive Steiner residential home in Cornwall, it became time, 6 years ago, for our brother to move. After various routes we eventually found the remarkable Pericles. Set up with the community based in its heart, the creativity and nurturing have allowed our brother, 50 years old with autism, to blossom. With the continued use of practical and artistic skills combined with an integrated social life, he now is a confident and remarkably happy person.”

Pericles is a truly magical place, staffed by wonderful, caring people.  Paris felt at home as soon as she started, and has relished all the new challenges and opportunities that have come her way, whether that be baking crumble with apples straight from the tree, learning new art techniques, or making a bird house whilst sat round a log stove.  Nestled as Pericles is in the quiet of the Sussex countryside, Paris has enjoyed the freedom to explore her surroundings whilst feeling safe and nurtured. I look forward to watching her continue to grow and develop in both confidence and skills during her time with all her new friends.”
