A HAMPSHIRE college dedicated to improving the lives of those living with autism is set to unveil its new learning resources centre.

The £170,000 needed to make the new centre a reality for The Bridge – the region’s only college specifically for young people with autism – was raised by Autism Hampshire fundraisers.

Before its conversion, the centre was an empty building on the Southampton campus but now it offers a place to study for students learning life skills.

Councillor Ivan White will open the new facility to the public on June 20.
