Friday Lunch Break back for new school term

We are delighted to be able to invite parents and carers of autistic children and young people in Berkshire to join us for more free Friday Lunch Break online get-togethers in September.

These sessions proved popular during the lockdown at the start of the year and again in the run-up to the school summer holidays, giving parents and carers an opportunity to chat, share issues and ideas and get advice in a friendly and informal way.

Our family support worker Amanda Walker will be back online on Friday, September 3, just after the schools go back, with more sessions lined up for September 10, 17 and 24, and further dates to follow.

If you have any questions about getting children and young people back into a routine for school or have any helpful tips to share with other families, any other issues you would like help with, or you just want a chance to take some time to relax and chat with other parents and carers, you are welcome to join a session.

All Friday Lunch Break meetings take place online on Zoom between 12 noon and 1pm. If you can’t make it on the dot of noon, you are welcome to join in at any time during the session.

You can now register for free places at the following Friday Lunch Break sessions. Click on the dates when you would like to attend to book a place – registration will close at 11.59am on the morning of each event:
