Parents / Carers

The parent/ carer group is run on the second Wednesday each month from
10.00 am until 12.00pm. and the fourth Friday of every month from 12-2pm at Newcastle congregational church. The group runs as support network.

Sometimes professionals and other agencies come to give information on issues that affect many people with an ASC. Some organisations represented include Aiming High; a local Solicitor, a representative from the Family Fund and Parent Participation and Involvement.

Sometimes the group runs as a parent/ carer self support group where people have the chance to talk and discuss issues that they feel are pertinent to their lives.

The  group is always run by a member of staff and volunteers who have lots of experience with ASCs. New  members are always welcome.
