Family Support Service
We have 3 family support workers ready and willing to help provide information and support for disabled people, their families and carers around any matter including:
- welfare benefits
- support planning
We can support you at meetings with schools and social services, complete forms and grant applications as well as having access to local and national disability databases.
Our part-time Family Support Worker for children and young people with social and communication needs provides advice, guidance and signposting to local and national services for parents and carers who have concerns about their children’s social and communication needs, awaiting assessment or post diagnosis of assessment. Our Family Support Worker is available to attend diagnostic assessments with parents and offer a follow up meeting within two weeks of the diagnostic meeting.
CASPA delivers quarterly workshops for parents and carers which are user-led, focus on the needs of families and include a wide range of autism-specific topics. The workshops offer peer support and signposting. In addition Bromley Mencap provides a weekly drop-in for families.
To contact the service please telephone our Helpline on 020 8466 0790.
Please call us if you think we can assist you in any way.
We run a number of small grant schemes. For more details, contact Gill Eldridge
