Bristol Autism Support (BAS) is a peer to peer support charity for parents and carers of autistic children in Bristol and the surrounding area. No diagnosis is required to access any of our support services.
What some of our parent /carers have said about BAS:
“It is the single most helpful organisation that I have interacted with. They have offered and directed me to so much help and support. I was fortunate enough to complete the understanding autism course for free and it has helped me more than I could ever express in words.”
“Helped us feel less alone at a time when no other support available”
“I have found great support from Bristol autism support when I have otherwise felt so alone in this rollercoaster of emotions of a journey”
Come and meet Bristol Autism Support
Join us at one of our regular coffee mornings for a casual cuppa and a chat. A chance to meet other parents and carers and our volunteers. There is no need to book for our coffee mornings just turn up on the day. Our volunteers will be wearing lanyards and we will have a table sign that say’s BAS so we should be easy to find.
In Person Support Groups
Our in person support groups are casual meetings where you can have a chat, talk through any issues and enjoy the company of others who really get what you are going through. You can book to let us know you are coming (see below for booking) or just turn up on the day.
Our family events are designed to have limited numbers so booking is always required (see below for booking)
Information Sessions & Support Blocks
BAS have a range of online and in person information sessions, courses and support blocks. These all need to be booked in advance in order to attend.

The majority of our events and sessions are free but some familiy events may have small charges. Most of our events can be booked via Eventbrite. Go to our calendar, find the event you wish to book, click on the event and you will be directed to the booking link for that event.
