Derbyshire Autism Services Group
Derbyshire Autism Services Group, known to our many families and colleagues as DASG. The DASG is based in the heart of Derbyshire in Ripley which allows us to cover the diverse area of Derbyshire. Newsletters containing useful information are sent out to over 700 families every month.
People from all-over Derbyshire can contact us for advice and signposting to other organisations in their area that may be of assistance.
- To promote and enhance the care of people with Autism Spectrum Conditions & other disabilities
- To assist the carers of people with autism & disabilities
- To raise awareness of autism and the problems and constraints individuals and their families encounter
- To provide support, information and guidance to enable people with autism and their carers to maximize their opportunities and potential
We are direct service providers through a Children in Need grant to 20 children & young people mainly in the Amber Valley area. This service can be home or community based, its purpose is to provide activity & stimulation and the advancement of self –help skills to young people with Autistic Spectrum Conditions and other disabilities. This project also gives parents/cares a break.
