As our monthly carers support group has been suspended during lockdown, we are now offering the same support in an online Zoom meeting format. This will be a chance to meet other parents and carers facing similar challenges, swap ideas, and find out about support and activities in the local area. Anyone caring for a child or adult with ASD is very welcome to attend. Please book on Eventbrite.
ACE was created by the charity the Autism Research Trust, and is home to Cambridge University’s Autism Research Centre (ARC) and will also provide clinical, educational and life skills services across the lifespan, for autistic people and their families. The mission of ACE is to promote wellbeing for autistic people, and to promote autism research.
