A support group for parents and carers of children who suffer with autism will be meeting on Monday, November 9, from 10am to noon at Zone Out Meeting Room in Worksop library.

Last year the hospital trust ceased to fund Friends Together, a support group for parents and carers of disabled children in Bassetlaw. The group was renamed friends4support.

For details of when friends4support meet the dates can be found at www.friends4support.co.uk

Diane Blood, one of the founder members, is concerned about the stress placed on families when one or more of the children are affected by autism and also the misunderstandings that can exist surrounding the children’s behaviour by families, friends and sometimes schools.
