To help build a community where people with a range of abilities, personalities and capacities engage, interact and contribute at work, at home and socially. We see our community through a different lens and are walking towards a world where, when it comes to autism, there is no box to think outside of. A world where diversity is so ‘normal’, it’s unremarkable.
To provide unique quality opportunities for people on the autism spectrum to develop and display their strengths, capacity and contributions to the world around them.
Spectrum Space is a bold, innovative community organisation tearing down social barriers for young people on the autism spectrum.
Together we engage, challenge, inform, develop and expand new skills – and create exciting opportunities for corporates and the community to join in.
We explore and celebrate people – loudly and proudly forging connections with family, community, work places and colleagues.
Spectrum Space is a registered NDIS service provider running a variety of highly successful social groups. We also provide training and education to a wide variety of sectors in the community including employers, educators and government agencies. To find out more about our services please click here.

Spectrum Space, formerly known as Autism West and FOCAS Incorporated (Focus on Children within the Autism Spectrum), was formed in 2001. The group aimed to support families and raise funds for resources to support Early Intervention Therapy. Over our long history, Spectrum Space has been in the business of boldly breaking down barriers and dismissing boundaries.
