NAS Swansea branch was established in August 2015. Our branch is a volunteer led charity supporting autistic people and their families in and around Swansea.
We are a support network and growing community for autistic people, parent/carers and their family & friends. Whether a person is diagnosed, on the pathway or suspect autism they are very welcome to join our charity and access support, advice, appropriate and enjoyable events, courses and workshops etc.
The aim, the dream really, is to help Swansea become an autism friendly city. Breaking down the barriers and making our city accessible and accepting to all. By everyone working together we believe that this goal is more than achievable. So to help us make this a reality we network, we talk to as many people as possible about autism. We collaborate, we co-produce and we co-design as much as possible. We deliver our understanding autism talk to as many people as we can, we take The Trummies on tour to as many schools as we can, always working hard towards that one objective.
