Welcome to Nas Thurrock

NAS Thurrock Group launched in September 2015 and is run on a voluntary basis by parents, carers of children who have autism spectrum conditions. We hold monthly support groups for parents and carers.

We also provide a number of activities for both families and children with autism, see our activities listsThe Group volunteers raise awareness of autism, support and encourage the development of autism services in Thurrock.
Income to provide social activities and resources are raised by local parents, private donations and by applying for funding.

We rely on volunteers to run the branch and welcome applications from people in the local area who would like to help out with our activities; raising awareness or running support group sessions (e.g. in local schools). We also organise workshops, speakers, and other activities to make information, advice and support more accessible for all.

Anyone wishing to offer their time to help in anyway would be very welcome.

Nas Thurrock

Welcome to the Thurrock NAS website, and hope that you find it a helpful resource.

Autism is a serious, lifelong and disabling condition, which has an immense impact on lives. But it simply doesn't get the attention it deserves. This means that people affected by autism don't get the services and support they need.

People have contacted us to ask for information on aspects of Autistic Spectrum Conditions and on local support, resources, and activities. We hope this website will help people in our area to find information more quickly and will be a significant step for many in finding local support.

We plan to continue to develop the website so please give us your feedback and let us know what you may find helpful. If you have any news or information you would like to share please contact us.

Take a look, get involved and talk to others in our area by joining in discussions on our facebook page called NasThurrock
