About the Organisation

Would you like to receive confidential emotional support from another parent?

Parent to Parent (P2P) is a UK-wide confidential telephone service providing emotional support to parents and carers of children or adults on the autism spectrum.

The service is provided by trained parent volunteers who are all parents themselves of a child or adult on the autism spectrum. Volunteers are based across the UK so you don’t have to share information with someone in your 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, suggest helpful strategies, or provide a non-judgemental listening ear.

You can call at any time, day or night, and leave a message on our 24-hour answer phone. Please be aware that you will not speak to someone immediately as this is not a manned line. If you leave a message, we will call you back as soon as possible at a time that suits you, including evenings and weekends. Alternatively you can use our online enquiry service: http://www.autism.org.uk/services/community/family-support/parent-to-parent/enquiry.aspx
