A new care home aimed at autism sufferers has opened near Helston.

Huthnance Park at Nancegollan was approved by regulators last month.

Opened by care provider Green Light PBS Limited, Huthnance Park provides everything from respite and day activities through to 24 hour residential support.

Home manager Hannah Lake said: “Lack of autism provision means many families are having to travel o access appropriate support. We hope Huthnance Park will be a good option, closer to home.”
