About Us

Family Fun

NAS branches in England provide a local hub where parents, carers and people with autism can get help, access services, support each other and meet other people and families in similar situations.

The West Cornwall Branch does this through:

  • Open meetings with guest speakers where people have the opportunity to meet and support each other.
  • Providing information and ideas in regular newsletters and through access to the branch library.
  • Arranging social events and family trips out. These include a young adults group which runs on a weekly basis and a regular swimming group which has private use of a pool.
  • Helping to raise autism awareness in the area by organising public events and generating press reports.

For more information about autism, Asperger syndrome and related diagnoses visit the National Autistic Society main website.

They aim to give families and carers of people with autism information about changes to adult social care.

The event will cover community care, the Care Act, Person-centred Planning, Support planning, personal budgets, personal health budgets, direct payments and how personalisation can work for you and the person you care for.

This is a must for all of us so please email Tracey on westcornwall@nas.org.uk to book your place.
