About Us

The Isabella Trust is a small Liverpool based charity which provides support to parents and carers of autistic children and children with sensory difficulties.

Autism is a lifelong developmental disability which affects the way a person communicates and interacts with others.  Sensory difficulties can impact on how a person receives and uses information via the senses.  Sensory perceptions of a person with autism can cause them difficulty in processing sounds, sights and smells this can often result in the person becoming stressed or anxious and possibly feel physical pain.
