A charity which helps those with autism wants to assure people they will still be supported during the coronavirus outbreak.
The charity's chief executive Christine Edwards-Daem said: "It is going to be a difficult time for us all and at some point, we are going to have minimal staff, so we are going to have to do things differently, activities will be reduced, and our focus will be on keeping those we support as happy and as comfortable as possible within their homes.
"We have had fantastic support from parents and families who have been encouraging and understanding of the difficult decisions we need to take especially reducing services in response to the availability of staff."
The Trust has closed its head office in Brompton, near Gillingham, however, its homes supported living centres are open. The trust's day centres have had to close.
They are appealing to school, nursery, hospitality and retail staff who are not in work but have a passion for care to get in touch for jobs on a variety of contracts.
