Children and Families

Support for Families in Sandwell

Our Sandwell Family Service is funded by Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council. Families must live in the Sandwell Council area, and have children under 18 years old, with autism/autistic traits. An autism diagnosis is not needed.

We offer:

  • Parent training workshops: including introductory awareness sessions, programmes with multiple sessions, and workshops on specific topics.
  • Individual advice and support for parents: advice sessions are a chance for parents to meet a member of the team face to face, discuss their concerns and receive practical advice. Further support may be available and can be discussed at the advice appointment. Advice appointments can also take place by telephone or Zoom call.
  • Coffee mornings and family events: Informal meetings and events in the holidays are a chance to meet others and share experiences in a supportive environment.
  • Facebook Group: The group will enable you to access information and resources, take part in online events, meet other parents and carers and much more! To join click here
