PASDA offers support to parents and carers of adults (over 16s) on the autistic spectrum who live in Edinburgh and the Lothians.
It can be difficult to know where to turn, especially if your relative has had a late diagnosis of autism or Asperger's Syndrome, as the focus can often be around children.
We provide information and support to unpaid family carers who are supporting an adult (over-16) on the autism spectrum in Edinburgh
and the Lothians.
We provide support through the following activities:
One to one advice
Information sessions on autism and related issues
Signposting to statutory and voluntary services
Peer support groups in Edinburgh and the Lothians
Updates on service developments in your local area via our newsletter, email and Facebook
Contact with other families through our peer support network, PASDA Connect.
Our vision is that families of adults on the autism spectrum will live meaningful and fulfilling lives.
We run a range of carer support groups throughout the month across Edinburgh and the Lothian's including:
Carer Information Meeting
Carer Coffee Morning
Partner & Spouses Group
