We are here to support you and will continue to deliver our Family Support Hub services throughout the Coronavirus pandemic.

It has undoubtedly been a difficult time for families over that last 8 months; coping with the everchanging rules, regulations and guidance that needs to be followed. We here at Autism East Midlands know how important it is for families to have regular contact with us and it has been great seeing some of you over the Summer and Autumn.

As we go into a further lockdown, we can only speculate how long this will go on for and what the next changes will be. We want to let you know we are still happy for you to contact us if you require support, have questions or need advice. We can do this through email, phone or Zoom and put you in touch with your Local Hub Coordinator to receive a more local response. Booking is essential, to book onto our virtual sessions please contact linsey.atkins@autismeastmidlands.org.uk. 

We hope to organise some Christmas activities in the next few weeks. With the changing situation we are mindful that these will be organised virtually – so let us know if this is something you would be interested in taking part in. Our virtual hubs will have a mix of activities for the children and some sessions where parents can just get together and chat – more details of these events will be circulated shortly.

You can find the dates for our November Virtual Family Support Hubs by clicking here.

Throughout the Autumn we have managed to hold some Hubs in various areas across the East Midlands, but to comply with restrictions these were on a smaller scale than previously experienced and we are hoping to resume our physical groups again in the Spring. We will keep you updated on any changes regarding our Family Support Hubs through our social media platforms and our website.
