Support with Autism Network (SWAN)

In partnership with River Bank Primary, The Autism Spectrum Team, from the Special Educational Needs Service (SENS), run a support group for families affected by autism in the local community.

The group hold half-termly meetings, where carers have the opportunity to speak to professionals, and meet with other carers. Guest speakers are regularly invited to share their expertise.

The group have a mailing list, which we use to inform members of upcoming meetings, and to share information, news and events relating to autism in the local area. If you would like to join the mailing list, please email the team:

Due to Covid-19 all parent support groups are running online see below for details.

The team are working throughout the COVID-19 crisis, and are available by email should you wish to speak to someone.
