Review HELPP on
Sutton’s Local Offer website, where you will find information about provision available locally across education, health and social care for children and young people who have special educational needs or who are disabled, covering the age range from birth to 25 years old. This includes those who do not have an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan.
NAS Sutton is run by parents of young children on the spectrum. They are there to support parents, families, carers and professionals who work with children with ASD. At the moment, they are a small branch that can provide information and signposting to both local and national support networks. They run regular coffee mornings with guest speakers, so members can get together and meet others in similar positions.
The 15th Wallington is a scout group specifically for young people with additional needs. We take boys and girls from the age of 6 through to 25. More information can be found on our website www.15wallington.scoutsites.org.uk
