Autism Parents Together (Tees Valley), is a charity that was originally established as a parent support group in 2018.
Our charity provides support to children/young people aged 0-18, either diagnosed with or undergoing assessment for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
We also support their parents/carers and siblings.
The main goal of the charity is to reduce the social isolation of autistic children/young people and their families.
We create exclusive, parent/carer lead events and activities for children/young people. We also arrange separate events /activities and training for parents/carers only.
All our events/activities and training are subsidised. We want to ensure they are affordable and accessible for all our families.
We hold exclusive events/activities include soft play, swimming, quad bikes, gaming, cinema and many more.
We adapt the environment, so it is more suited to the needs of autistic children/young people.
This includes reducing the number of people attending, changing the lighting, and making it quieter.
All our events require parents/carers to attend for the duration, to support their child/young person.
Private Support Group
We have a private Facebook support group strictly for parents/carers only.
We hold exclusive events for parents/carers only.
These include a monthly coffee morning, spa days, craft making events and other events.
Parents/carers often meet, make friends, and create their own support network.
We hold a variety of training /workshops for parents/carers. These include Understanding Autism, Autism in Girls, EHCP Legal Training and a variety of other topics.
We have many fundraising opportunities for everyone to join in with. These include Total Warrior, The Great North Run, sponsored walks, Great North Swim, our annual fundraising charity ball and many more opportunities.
