The NAS Rotherham Branch launched in October 2008 and is run on a voluntary basis by parents, carers and also adults with autism spectrum conditions. We hold monthly peer support meetings for adults on the spectrum, and are hoping to relaunch our parent/carer group meetings in the near future.
We also provide a number of activities for both families and adults with autism,see our adult and family activities lists
The Branch volunteers raise awareness of autism; and support and encourage the development of autism services in Rotherham.
Income to provide social activities and resources are raised by local parents, private donations and by applying for funding.
We rely on volunteers to run the branch and welcome applications from people in the local area who would like to help out with our activities; raising awareness or running support group sessions (e.g. in local schools). We also organise seminars, speakers, and other activities to make information, advice and support more accessible for all.
Anyone wishing to offer their time to help in anyway would be very welcome.
