You can really help to make a difference to the lives of those living with autism in West Midlands.
Why we need your support
The support I have received has been invaluable and got me through many dark moments. The speakers and dads have shared coping strategies and experience and as a result I feel more confident as a parent.
Parent of child with autism
A diagnosis of autism can leave a family with more questions than answers. Many parents suddenly find themselves facing a scary and uncertain future. We are here to support the families through the tough times, to offer a helping hand along the way; a life-line or just a friendly ear to listen, understand and advise. Your financial support will help us to continue to provide:
- Personalised support for families and children in crisis
- The development of life skills in children
- Family support days
- Support through our helpline service
- Sibling support groups
- Support groups and coffee mornings for families
- Autism awareness training sessions on how autism can affect people’s lives.
