More About The Organisation

Organisation Details

About Us

The aim of this group is to provide parents and carers of children and adults on the autistic spectrum with a bit of a break from the fairly full-on parenting experience we are all going through.

It also provides the opportunity to meet new people and make new connections in a welcoming and friendly group.

Each of us has wisdom to share: how we are coping, what services and/or benefits we are accessing, the best places to go for X, etc. This group meets in the evenings to accommodate people who work, and/or who would like to go out of an evening without their child/ren.
