looking for parent support locally
I have replied to your post in 'Parents and Carers' with the same response as below, I hope it is helpful to you.
I would like to signpost you to a couple of places on our website:
Firstly, you can find local support, service or social groups in your area using our Autism Services Directory - please use the ‘browse by category’ section in your search:
Secondly, you might like to try calling our Autism helpline, as they will be able to advise you of the different services or groups in your area to meet other parents. For details about the helpline, you can look here:
Alternatively, we have our Parent to Parent phone line, you can contact them to receive confidential emotional support from another parent. To contact parent to parent you can call 0808 800 4106, for more details on can look here:
I hope this has been helpful to you.
