Carers Hub - additional emotional support by phone; maintaining contact with all groups by text and phone; additional Autism Helpline Appointments available for parents around managing ASC children around changes due to COVID-19. Once we are past the initial stage of helping carers manage change; we will review other means of ongoing contact with groups should the situation continue long term. (I will ask our Homecare service to complete this questionnaire too so you have a full picture of GEECC)
We take referrals from a full range of voluntary and statutory sector organisations.
