Bristol Autism Project

We are pleased that FACE will be supporting Bristol City Council’s ‘Bristol Autism Project’ holiday activities with staffing for their holiday activity schemes 2018-2020 for 5-18 year olds with a diagnosis of autism who live in Bristol local authority area.

FACE is hosting a free coffee morning at their youth centre in Filton for parents or carers of children with Autism Spectrum Conditions (ASC) who would like to attend Bristol Autism Project in the Easter holidays – or just want to find out more.

The next one will be on: Tuesday 14th May 2019 10.15am-12.30pm

These informal events give the members an opportunity to meet other parents/ carers over a cup of coffee (or tea) with an optional sweet treat and share their thoughts, stories and experiences. They are also able to get to know the FACE team leader Rachel and make bookings for the next holidays.

Lots of fun free activities will be on offer for children and their families through the school holidays supported by FACE on these dates:

April 8 – 18th 2019, May 28th – 31st 2019, 24th July – 30th August 2019, 28th October – 1st November 2019
