Parent Support Group

The monthly support groups for parents/carers of children and adults on the Autistic Spectrum is a great way to access information and meet with other parents in an informal and friendly setting.

Our staff are also on hand to offer advice and information either in the group setting or where needed on a one-to-one basis.

Parent Support Groups take place every month at our premises in Woodward Road, Dagenham and at the Autism Hub in the Liberty Shopping Centre in Romford.  The remaining dates for summer 2022 are as follows;

13th June; Dagenham

22nd June; Romford

11th July; Dagenham (venue tba)

Due to Covid safety restrictions we can only accommodate a limited number of people. Please book a space asap by emailing familyservices@sycamoretrust.org.uk  or calling 01708 749 816.

During the pandemic, we operated the Parent Support Groups using Zoom.  These meetings proved popular, so we'll schedule some more very soon!
