Autism Central peer support and parent workshops

Are you looking for somewhere you feel listened to and understood? Autism Central is here to help.

The Autism Central Peer Education programme is for parents, carers and personal assistants of autistic people. Daisy Chain is the Regional Hub for North East and Yorkshire.

Support is provided by parents and carers of autistic people who are happy to share their knowledge and experience with others.

We are here to listen, offer guidance and tell you about services that are available in your local area.

Navigate you to services that can make a difference and empower you. Increase your knowledge, understanding and provide you with skills to last.

As part of the programme, Daisy Chain will provide weekly Parent Learning Opportunities and Links Parent Support Group (based in Stockton, held during term-time) with additional sessions set up in locations across North East and Yorkshire, and North East Lincolnshire.
