Gateshead Autism Hubs parent support groups are for parents and carers of children who display traits associated with, or have a diagnosis of autism.

These sessions will provide a safe space for parents and carers to meet others in a similar situation and provide the opportunity for peer support, enabling parents to support each other, share experiences and ideas. These groups are facilitated by a Gateshead Autism Hubs team member. The aim is to provide a supportive and empowering environment for parents and carers.

Parent support groups are designed to be relaxed and informal, providing you with the opportunity to meet other parents/carers in similar situations and discuss any topics or situations that you might be finding challenging, as well as sharing positive stories, top tips, strategies and information. A member of the Gateshead Autism Hubs team will always be present at these drop-ins to provide support and facilitate the group.

Some sessions take place face-to-face and some take place online.
