Following a recent meeting of the Acct Management Committee, a decision has been taken to discontinue the running of the Drop In Coffee Mornings. Attendance at the Coffee Mornings has been very low for some time and therefore, we have decided to concentrate our resources on the provision of our Acctivate and Teenage Clubs and our Family Days Out.

Parents and Carers can still access the support and company of other parents through the parents coffee room at Acctivate each Saturday morning. Parent carers can attend here whether or not their child attends Acctivate.

Our monthly Wednesday evening Parents’ Meetings will continue as before and our next meeting is on Wednesday 3rd September 7pm – 9pm at St. Mary’s. Stuart Williams, Educational Psychologist and head of the Autism Team, will speak about the work of the team.


Teenage is moving back to a booking system and places can be reserved for the session on –

  • Wednesday 3rd September
