Introduction to BLAST - Burntwood and Lichfield Autism Support Together

BLAST (Burntwood and Lichfield Autism Support Together) aims to give parents the chance to connect, share information and help each other navigate the challenges of raising a child with autism. In the future they hope to deliver opportunities for children with autism such as days out, activities and workshops.

BLAST have a jam packed program coming up in the next couple of months. As a relatively new group, their members have told them that they like BLAST’s ’all under one roof’ approach.
