Supporting the families of children and young people with Autism,
including Asperger syndrome.
Lancaster and Morecambe Branch of the National Autistic Society
We are a team of volunteers, all parents of children and young people with Autism Spectrum Disorders, and we give our time to support other families affected by Autism in the Lancaster, Morecambe and surrounding areas. We provide regular local support groups, coffee mornings, meetings with guest speakers, training and leisure opportunities and we have a library of resources for parents and carers to borrow.
Members of the Branch also represent us on a number of local committees and steering groups to ensure that the voice of the young people and their families is heard and awareness is raised of the issues affecting them. We also attend a variety of local activities to help raise awareness in the wider community and hold regular fundraising events to raise money for the Branch.
