FAMILY AUTISTIC SPECTRUM SUPPORT
Children on the autistic spectrum often find it difficult to join in mainstream activities. FASS gives them the opportunity to play with other children, with their families, in environments where they can feel comfortable. Check out our upcoming events list below or visit our activities page for more information and a full list of events.
WHO IS FASS?
FASS has over 750 members. Each member represents a family with a child or young person with Autism or related issues.
Our trustees are Jane, Michelle C, Scarlett, Nicki, Natalie, Michelle S.
If you are interested in becoming a trustee or a volunteer please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or chat with us at events.
WHAT DO FASS DO?
We offer a range of activities and support for children, siblings and their parents. Our activities suit all ages, interests and abilities and we take care to minimise factors that might cause anxiety, i.e. noise, crowds and queues.
In addition to our activities, we have a facebook support group, giving members the opportunity to exchange views, share ideas and ask advice in a private and non-judgemental platform.

We have a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities tailored for children and young adults on the Autistic Spectrum. Our members find it difficult to attend local activities. This can be because of the noise, queues, crowds and quite often struggle to negotiate social situations. FASS sole hires activities to allow children to be themselves in an environment they are their families find comfortable.
