Where can I meet other Coffs Coast Autism families?

Where and when can I meet other families with a connection to Autism, for support, information sharing, sharing interests and social activities?

A:

Coffs Coast Autism holds regular support group meetings and social events to provide opportunities for families to get together in a supportive environment and share information and resources.  From time to time we will offer information presentations, or workshops targeted at specific demographics within the autism community, such as a Carer Well-being workshop, or an NDIS talk.

Click here to go to our Events Calendar.  

It is not necessary to register your attendance for our regular group meetings, however for our workshops, information sessions and annual social events (such as, Family Fun Day in November, and our Family Picnic in April) we do ask that families register for those annual events, so that we can provide adequate catering and entertainment.  Check the flyer to see whether you need to register for that event, or not.
