Neurotopia is a new Lincoln based project, part of developmentplus and is a neurodivergent led neurodivergent support hub in Lincoln UK.

Alexandra Chambers, Development Worker, is leading this project and here she explains her plans for Neurotopia;

We offer one to one support with neurodivergent adults (no formal diagnosis required) AND parents of neurodivergent children. This is across the neurodivergent spectrum, primarily autistic and ADHD, however, all neurodivergents seeking support are most welcome.

We use a holistic coaching approach in the community and can help with many things including diagnosis support, advocacy, executive functioning difficulties, advice & signposting. As well as offering assistance with evidence gathering using the Early Years Foundation (EYFS) framework, Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) related issues, Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and Disability Living Allowance (DLA) forms. Also available are headed letters/ emails outlining and addressing any concerns to GP/schools,Dr’s appointments, school appointments along with a neuroaffirming lending library.

I can also provide Understanding Neurodiversity training for schools, employers, groups and more…..

We will be using a triage system alongside a waiting list to ensure people are receiving the best support in the fairest possible time frame. Initial appointments will be 90 minutes long to identify areas of support needed, the help required and how this would be achieved. We do this by asking you questions about any issues and through navigating the systems with you/ your child in mind.

I opened the hub on the 4th December 2023 and we have received a high demand on this service so far.

There is currently a waiting list for this service but to find out more contact Alexandra Chambers;
