Autism Independence supports families with disable (autism) children/young people from ethnic minorities including the Somali community to access services available. Communication is real barrier for these families.
Autism Independence promotes overcoming taboo and stigma of disabilities. We value the importance of creating an environment where parents network, socialise and support each other along with bringing together different communities and services.
We work with NHS, National Autistic Society and Bristol City Council.
Our aim is to integrate and empower disadvantage families.
You can get involve by coming to our monthly drop in sessions, and can contact us with your concerns.
