Do you care for someone on the 
Autistic Spectrum
 or who has 
 Social Communication Difficulties?

Then you are warmly invited to join our 
Carers' Support Group.

Autism Support Crawley is a group for parents / carers, over 18 years of age, who care for someone (child or adult) who is on the autistic spectrum or with other Social Communication Difficulties (with or without a diagnosis) within the counties of Surrey & Sussex. This includes grandparents, siblings (over 18), or other relations who share the caring responsibilities. We are a very friendly, supportive group with over 1K members.

Membership of our group is for parent/carers ONLY as detailed above. Unfortunately we are not able to include anyone who is a carer by profession unless they also fit the above criteria of parent/carer. 


We have a closed Facebook page where members can ask questions, share experiences and receive support from other members.  Our facebook page is administered completely by volunteers who do this round their own working and caring commitments.  Please only request to join our closed facebook page if you match the above criteria.  For general inquiries about our group or requests to add information about a service or organisations that are relevant to our group  please use form or email addresson our contact us page.

Non parent/carers who would like to follow our group, please visit our public page.
