Are you a parent/carer/personal assistant of an autistic child or adult? Support is available through the Autism Central Peer Education Programme.

The Autism Central Peer Education Programme is a Peer-to-Peer support programme for parent carers and Personal Assistants of autistic individuals. This is an all age, free service and you do not need to have a diagnosis to access the service.

The Autism Central website has a constantly growing range of resources and guidance for parents/carers/personal assistants.

The website also has information about weekly online group sessions for parents/carers and Personal Assistants. Some are drop-in sessions where parents/carers can talk about anything relating to autism and others are themed sessions. The group sessions can be booked directly from the website.

Parent carers/personal assistants can also request one to one support via telephone or Teams calls if they would like to talk through any concerns or questions in more depth. This can be requested via the website.

All of our Peer Educators have lived experience of autism, mostly with autistic children of their own, of a range of ages. They undergo training in order to be able to support other parents/carers.
