BUILDING FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCES
Our aspirations for the charity are to provide a range of innovative services that put parents/guardians and families central to everything we do. By providing this support, we hope to improve the emotional resilience and general wellbeing of the parents, guardians, grandmothers, sibling and families which will indirectly enhance the lives of those with Autism.
Drawing upon the unique blend of the parental experience and relevant professional expertise, we aim to create a service offer that enhances the lives of families we work with. We will offer tailored parental support services, respite services and personal growth programmes delivered by parents for parents. The Avalon community will play an active role in supporting each other and they will shape the services available to them.
Connect with our diverse Avalon community that includes parents, caregivers, grandparents, siblings, health professionals and Avalon Advisors for practical support, guidance and peer mentoring.

Parental Resource Library
There is so much information available on the internet about autism today – the good, the bad and the ugly. As a new parent or family member impacted autism, you can spend many hours searching for answers and still come up empty - I know this only too well from personal experience. To tackle this we want to create a resource library that has been hand selected by our Avalon community of parents, guardians, grandparents, siblings and health professionals. The most useful research and resources they have used to help them navigate their autism journey. What is more important is our resource library will include useful factual content alongside inspiring stories of hope which are often missing. We are calling all Parents to get in touch to share your most useful resources.
