If you provide unpaid care to someone aged 16+ in Hertfordshire who is autistic or is awaiting a diagnosis for an autism spectrum disorder, you’re invited to an information and wellbeing event we have organised with Autism Hertfordshire..
The event, for parents and family friend carers of an autistic adult or young adult, takes place at Welwyn Civic Centre, Welwyn Garden City, on Friday 8th July 2022, 1pm – 4pm.
You will be able to get information from different organisations that support carers or people with an autism spectrum disorder and their relatives. Experts will be on hand to share their knowledge to help you look after yourself or support the person you care for. Perhaps you want to know how to manage sensory overload, anxiety or difficulties making friends.
There will also be a chance to take part in a mindfulness, yoga or dance workshop and have an acupuncture taster session and find out how it can help relieve pain.
If you would like to attend, please book a place online via the event listing on our events page or email
You can also call 01992 58 69 69 to book or for support related to your caring role. Find out more about the support provided by Autism Hertfordshire at www.autismbedfordshire.net/support-in-hertfordshire or call 01727 743246.
Karen Malone, one of Carer Development and Involvement Workers, said: "We look forward to welcoming Hertfordshire’s carers who support an autistic adult to this free event. You will be able to meet other people with a similar caring role, have some ‘me time’ and pick up information to help you and the person you look after.”
