“ASD Helping Hands will support all service users affected by an Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) regardless of age or what stage of life they are at. We aim to offer guidance, practical advice and support whether you are personally affected or you are an associated family member, carer, friend or professional. We will actively champion the rights of all people affected by ASD’s and aim to make a positive difference to their lives while delivering a service that is accessible, reliable and trustworthy.”
The organisation is for all affected by the Autistic Spectrum, this covers a wide variety of difficulties. We believe that all families and individuals have the right to good quality information, support and guidance in order to promote empowerment to allow positive choices to be made, enabling access to the same opportunities as everybody.
As part of our support for the whole family we will recognise and support siblings and young carers.
We currently have a Family Support Groups running in Aylsham and Thetford (please see family support for further information).
We also have Teenage Groups running in Thetford, Brandon, Lowestoft and Kings Lynn (please see youth support for further information).
The King Lynn teenage group is run in conjunction with the West Norfolk National Autistic Society.
We are also in the process of looking for funding to start up several more groups that we have been asked for around the county.
