In this section you can find out about our family support services across the West Midlands, including outreach, short breaks, support groups and education advice.

Sibling Support

A diagnosis of autism in the family can have a huge impact on the child's siblings. Our support is delivered as workshops, specifically for siblings of individuals with autism.

Similar to Family Day activities, these workshops:

  • Provide an opportunity to meet other siblings of individuals with autism
  • Offer the chance to discuss problems and concerns - they can be open and honest in a non-judgmental environment
  • Involve a range of activities
  • Reduce social isolation
  • Provide opportunity for parents to have a short break or spend time with their child with autism
  • Increase siblings' confidence and offer learning around strategies to cope with issues that arise
