The National Autistic Society (NAS)

Parent to Parent is a UK-wide confidential telephone service providing emotional support to parents and carers of autistic children and adults. The service is provided by trained parent volunteers who offer telephone support from their own homes. The Parent to Parent volunteers are based across the UK, so parents don’t have to share information with someone in their local area.

Our volunteers have personal experience of autism and the impact it has on their own families. They can give other parents the opportunity to talk through problems and feelings. They can suggest helpful strategies, or provide a non-judgmental listening ear.

Our volunteers can:

  • provide an impartial listening ear
  • support you in identifying key issues and strategies
  • direct you to appropriate services for information and advice
  • call you back at a convenient time during the day, evening or weekend
  • offer you complete anonymity, as our volunteers are distributed across the UK.
