    In the building where the autism drop is where I attend, the front door is unlocked, there is no receptionist, there are three floors to the building and on the top floor is the staff office, a fellow service user told me today that he saw a couple of people walking around the building, they told him they were not registered visitors or service users

    It seems strange to me they have nobody at a front desk. You should let the staff know. It would be nice if they hired one of the higher functioning aspies to check people in.

    The staff know, they used to have service users be receptionists part time

    This is the problem now in the UK half of the charities have just disappeared and the rest are barely surviving no wonder there’s going to be lack of security and the government made sure of that

    The same thing is happening in the US. Truth be told, and despite salacious news stories that fire people up, crime is actually a fairly rare occurrence in most places. But it does happen, so we all need to be vigilant and have some kind of self-defense strategy.

    I hope your building is in a relatively safe, low crime area. Take care out there!

    because they wanted the money charities received because of their charitable status
