Parents and Carers

We believe in providing person centred support to people with learning disabiliites and their families and we have some services which are made to help families in particular. We have support workers available to help with issues around diagnosis of Autism and learning about an autistic child through one to one work and workshops, a rights and advice worker who has many years of experience working with people with learning disabilities and can offer one to one advice around many issues for example housing, benefits or educaiton. We have also put together a few useful links which might help families.
