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

Autism Support Crawley is a group for parents, siblings (over 18 years of age), grandparents, or other relations who help 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 Sussex, Surrey & Kent.  We are a very friendly, supportive group with over 1.5K members.

We have a closed Facebook page where members can ask questions, share experiences and receive support from other members.  Please only request to join our closed Facebook page if match the above membership criteria.  Please ensure you answer the three joining questions as we are not able to join anyone who has not answered the questions.
