INFORMATION AND SUPPORT

Every month we hold support and information meetings for parents/carers/family members/Individuals or anyone who would benefit from attending, where you can relax and chat with others who are going through (or have been through) the same situations.

Our support team are parents of autistic children/adults so have a wealth of hands on knowledge and understand. We know how lonely and isolating it can be and we pride ourselves on the wonderful friendships that have formed over the years. 

As well as offering help and support, we can also signpost families to local agencies and advisors that PACT for Autism have established strong partnerships with, ensuring that our families have access to a wide range of services.
