We help other families affected by autism access:

  • advice, support and information
  • autism-friendly activities


One of the ways we do this is by supporting research into evidence-based therapy. To find out more about early intervention research click here…


Our school holiday programme is unique in Wellington and is a fantastic service for families looking for appropriate holiday activities and some respite. Click here to find out more…


Trust members are also parents of ASD kids and have been through the rollercoaster that is diagnosis, early invention and transition to school. We meet regularly and meetings are a great place to discuss local services and activities.
