About Our Branch

The NAS Surrey Branch is a volunteer-run support group founded by parents to support other parents.

 

Founded in 1995, we now have around 2000 members and offer a variety of local support group meetings, talks, parent programmes and activities for families that include autistic children or adults.

 

The branch is run exclusively by volunteers, most of whom are parents of one or more autistic children or adults. We are always looking for additional people to help us: to find out about how you could get involved – even if you have very little time – please contact Carol Teunon at NASSurreyBranch@NAS.org.uk with ‘Volunteering’ in the subject line.

 

The Branch is part of The National Autistic Society, a national charity founded by parents in 1962 which runs a wide range of services such as schools and adult services.

 

The NAS has over 20,000 members, 100 branches and works in partnership with more than 50 local autism societies. The NAS exists to champion the rights and interests of all people with autistic spectrum disorders and to ensure that they and their families receive quality services appropriate to their needs.

 

The National Autistic Society is a registered charity, number 269425 – this is also the charity number for the branch. The NAS is a company limited by guarantee: number 1205298.
