Turn your everyday online shopping into FREE donations
Over £35m raised for good causes through easyfundraising
The Isle of Wight Branch of The National Autistic Society (NAS) was launched in June 2008 and is run entirely by volunteers, most of whom are parents of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Although we are still quite new, we are growing rapidly.
We aim to give families support by meeting regularly and by offering seminars and workshops. There is also an online support group for those who are unable to attend a meeting, and for chat and support any time of the day.
As a branch we provide information on autism and on NAS services and work to raise awareness of autism across the Isle of Wight. We seek to co-operate with local statutory and voluntary organisations where appropriate.
The branch currently offers the following:
â€¢ Local Support Groups in Cowes, Newport and West Wight
â€¢ Saturday Lego club
â€¢ Gamezone club
â€¢ Trampoline club
â€¢ Autism friendly screenings at Cineworld
â€¢ monthly branch meetings, often with a guest speaker
â€¢ out of school get togethers
â€¢ online support through facebook
â€¢ information for people with an ASD, their families, organisations and professionals.
