Goal setting

"I remember at the first workshop, I just couldn’t believe it when the instructors went through what they could teach us and how it might help Jacob. I just sat there and cried. I was thinking ‘this could be life-changing, it’s just amazing.’ It was also brilliant to meet and talk to other parents of children with autism. I remember thinking ‘We’re all in this together, our struggles are real and these people really understand. We are not alone.’” - Liz, Jacob's Mum and workshop attendee.


What can/can't I bring to the event?

The workshops are for parents/carers only. We are unable to accommodate pet dogs or children.

If I'm unable to attend, can I obtain a refund?

If you have a situation that prevents you from coming to our workshops and you can give us 7 days notice before the date of the first workhop of your cancellation, we will happily refund your payment.
If you have to cancel your place with less than 7 days notice then unfortunately we cannot refund your payment as we will have committed to final costs for the workshop.

I have special dietary requirements

Please state any special dietary requirements on the booking form and we will do our best to accomodate them.
