Austism Central Hub
Are you a family member or carer of an autistic child or adult? Are you looking for support, but not sure where to start?

Essex County Council have an online Autism Central Hub offering guidance to families, carers and personal assistants of autistic people. There are support sessions run by parents or carers of autistic people, who are happy to share their knowledge and experience with you. They offer group and one-to-one sessions to help you find the information and services available in your area. Hubs also run events such as workshops, drop-in sessions, coffee mornings or virtual meet-ups.
