COS for Autism Families is a parent led support group. Our mission is to provide a network of support to Autism families by Autism families.

Our Aims at COS are to:

~To offer family support to parents by parents

~To develop a 'Community of Autism Families' through our support network

~To provide opportunities for children with Autism to meet and to develop social and communication skills

~To provide support to siblings and the opportunity for siblings to meet and form friendships

~To reduce the feeling of isolation experienced by Autism families

~To further raise awareness of Autism in the local community by making play parks, restaurants, cinema, shops, supermarkets and libraries more 'Autism Friendly'

We offer parents fortnightly coffee meetings, educational opportunities for parents and extended family members and ‘Autism Friendly’ family days out including regular ‘Autism Friendly Viewings at our local cinema. We facilitate therapies for the children with ASD, including music therapy, swimming and drama. We encourage involvement of siblings and close family members in our family days and our summer scheme. Also as a group we strive for raising Autism Awareness within our community.
