Centre for ADHD & Autism Support (CAAS) - charity reg: 1080795 - supports, educates and empowers individuals with a diagnosis of ADHD and/or autism, their families, and the community. Through raising awareness we change perceptions and break down barriers.
From working in the field for over 20 years, personal experience of staff, and through talking and listening to ADHD/autistic people we have an in-depth understanding of the needs of our clients and how to support them. We provide information, training, support groups and practical help to residents of NorthWest London, primarily the Boroughs of Harrow and Hillingdon.
Our aims are to -
Support: We provide a comprehensive service that acknowledges that clients need support pre-and post-diagnosis. We believe in early intervention, and support, rather than crisis management and our holistic approach encompasses the whole family from childhood through to adulthood.
Educate: CAAS offers youth and parent training, in-house courses and specialised workshops. Education can change perceptions, leading to reduced anger, mental health issues and social isolation. Education arms people with the tools they need to become stronger individuals, better parents and better professionals.
Empower: Feeling empowered can break down barriers and encourage positivity about the future.
We are a small, but incredibly busy, organisation currently running 32 services. We supported over 2000 people in the past 12 months and average 49 new registrations per month. We have an amazing and dedicated team doing brilliant work. We can guarantee you will never be bored!
