Angels Support Group was formed in response to families in the community in desperate need of support for themselves and their children. All of our volunteers have children with either ADHD or an autistic spectrum disorder and are committed to providing a resource that people will find both useful and accessible, making it available to as many families as possible.
Raising a child diagnosed with ADHD and/or ASD can be very challenging to any parent or carer without the right support. The aim of Angels is to help to empower parents and carers and encourage them to feel confident in supporting their child, both in the home environment and educationally.
Angels hold weekly support group meetings which are “adult only” time where we offer friendship, support, the sharing of ideas, difficulties and concerns, and we help to reduce isolation. There is plenty of opportunity to talk freely and discuss issues with other parents who completely understand the difficulties we all face. We support each other and offer a friendly meeting place to talk about all kinds of issues.
A free crèche is available for members with pre-school children at the Hitchin and Stevenage groups.
