Our support team are parents of autistic children/adults so have a wealth of hands on knowledge and understand.  We pride ourselves on the wonderful friendships that have formed over the years, connecting like minded people and families.


As well as offering help and support, we can also signpost and connect  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.
