Autism Support Cafรฉs

We are inviting parents and carers of children of all ages, who have:
ยท an autism diagnosis
ยท are awaiting an assessment
are displaying early indicators ( suggesting their child may be Neurodiverse),

to attend our next Autism Social Cafรฉ with local support groups, information stalls and short workshops.
These event are in partnership with statutory services and community and voluntary organisations who can support families on their autism journey.

Our aim is to bring together parents, carers and organisations, to provide support and information on services available. We are hoping that parents and carers will help us shape our plans for future events across the WHSCT, provide feedback, ideas and suggestions. Input from parents and carers will be extremely valuable in the co-design of our future Social Cafรฉโ€™s.
