Additional Support Needs family Cafe

We understand parenting children with additional support needs can sometimes present challenges, and enjoying meals together as a family can sometimes be difficult.  Therefore, we have a dedicated ASN family evening, that is perfect for families to enjoy a relaxed meal out together. 


We ensure the lighting is dimmed and create a relaxed autism-friendly atmosphere, to ensure the evening is suitable for children visiting. 


These dedicated evenings are particularly helpful to allow families to meet new friends and help establish a peer network of support, as we believe this is invaluable when raising children with disabilities.
