Peer to Peer
Parent / Carer Support
CASPA is a welcoming, non judgemental community where we can come together to find support to achieve the best outcomes for each other and our families.
Get advice about a whole host of topics and find true connection and friendships with a network of other individuals connected to the autistic community.
Come and be part of the conversation!
Another great resource and platform to share information and ask questions to get advice from more expert Parents and Carers.
You can search previous topics that have already been discussed such as toilet training and school placements.

Parent / Carer Pryzm
Monthly Zoom sessions for parents/carers of autistic people identifying as part of the LGBTQ+ community.
A safe space for parents/carers to explore issues and share experiences with others who are on a similar journey. Our professional team facilitate discussions around gender, sexuality and the challenges and triumphs that come with caring for individuals with these particular intersecting diversities. We also have a CASPA Rainbow Parents WhatsApp group for peer support.
Once a Month
Our Parent/Carer Support Zooms run every other Tuesday and are a great opportunity to connect with like-minded people, ask for advice, share tips, resources and achievements.
Or just talk about your concerns, fears or life in general without fear of judgment.
Our sensitive and confident CASPA staff facilitate the group and are always on hand to answer questions or provide guidance.
Parent / Carer
