Are you a Personal Assistant (PA) or carer for an autistic person or loved one? Our free learning workshops and support forums are designed specifically for you to give you the knowledge and confidence to best support them.
The sessions are facilitated by the Autism Central North East and Yorkshire team, based at Daisy Chain. Each learning workshop has a topic and opportunity questions, and the support forums are designed as a safe space for you to connect with others, share advice and good practice, from strategies to affordable activities in your local area.
