We are the Sutton branch of the National Autistic Society (NAS) run entirely by unpaid volunteers, many of whom have are parents / carers of autistic children.

NAS branches in England provide a local hub where parents, carers and autistic people can get help, access services, support each other and meet other people and families in similar situations.

NAS Sutton does this through organising:

  • Annual events such as Christmas parties and summer picnics
  • Special needs behaviour support group every month with Mark Brown from Special Help 4 Special Needs for parents and carers
  • Monthly support group for adults with autism
  • Evening workshops for parents and carers with guest speakers discussing a variety of topics
  • Regular activities for the whole family to enjoy such as theatre trips and drumming sessions
  • Our ever popular monthly Lego club for children and teens
  • Joint coffee mornings with South West London Girls Connect
  • Introduction to Autism course twice a year for parents and carers who have just received a diagnosis for their child

We also signpost to local support where possible, and run two Facebook groups, one for autistic adults and another for parents and carers of autistic children.

Membership of your local NAS branch is FREE! You don’t have to have a formal diagnosis to become a member. If you would like to join our mailing list and be kept up to date on all branch and local activities please complete our online registration form.

We receive no funding and all money we receive is spent on our members, so any donation, big or small, is welcomed! If you would like to support us either through volunteering your time or making a donation, you can find details on our Support Us page.

 For more information about autism please visit the National Autistic Society main website.

We hope you find it easy browsing our website, but if there is some information you can’t find please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We look forward to seeing you at one of our events shortly!
