ASD Family Help - Parent/Carer Support Group

ASD Family Help

This is a drop in session, which will be at different locations each week.  See our website for exact locations/times.

These sessions are for parents/carers to meet up and check in with others to boost morale and ensure we all feel supported. ASD Family Help staff/volunteers will be at these sessions to listen and support people who are feeling overwhelmed/isolated or just want a chat and a cuppa. We offer FREE information and signposting to local services and activities. We also offer help with benefits but this is by appointment only.

Specific children's activities are often organised during school holidays.

Our events are open to all affected by ASD or associated conditions (eg. Dyslexia, dyspraxia, OCD, Anxiety, PDA, ADHD etc) No diagnosis required.
