Autism West Midlands: Workshops & Advice sessions

Autism West Midlands LogoFree workshops in Shrewsbury for family carers living in Shropshire

Autism West Midlands are running “Rising to the Challenge” parent workshops again this year with 3 sessions before the summer holidays and 3 sessions after. There is a choice of day time or evening sessions.

The 6 sessions are FREE and for family carers of children with autism spectrum conditions who live in the Shropshire Council area (it’s ok if your child is not diagnosed so long as autism is being considered)

Bookings are being taken by email or phone and priority will be given to families attending for the first time and booking on all six sessions. If families have attended previously but missed a session or would like to attend again please get in touch.
