About Jigsaw

Jigsaw Trust is a registered charity (Charity No. 1075464) that was established in 1999 by a group of parents of children diagnosed with autism.

The aim of Jigsaw Trust is to improve the lives of those affected by autism through the provision of high quality, accessible, educational, vocational and well-being services.

In 1999, Jigsaw Trust raised enough funds to set up Jigsaw CABAS® School, opening its doors to six children. Today the school has provision for up to 60 pupils aged 4 to 19 years, and was once again rated Outstanding by Ofsted in October 2016.

In 2012, JigsawPlus was founded as Jigsaw Trust sought to expand its range of specialist day services to include adults.  Its Centre for Lifelong Learning was officially opened in April 2013 and in 2018 following a capital fundraising campaign, it moved into a newly built home on Dunsfold Park.

In 2013, Café on the Park was opened.  The Café is a not for profit business owned by Jigsaw Trust to enable our clients to undertake real work experience and develop valuable life skills in a caring and supportive environment.

Jigsaw has a therapy department consisting of Speech and Language Therapists and Occupational Therapists who work full time at the school delivering both individual, group and integrated therapy interventions to suit the individual needs of our pupils.

Jigsaw is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share the same commitment.   All positions will require an enhanced DBS check, satisfactory references and proof of qualifications.
