Since 2011 Galway Autism Partnership has been supporting families and individuals living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Galway Autism Partnership started as a small online group and was driven by the desire to ensure families had access to information, education and support.
We are now a community based charity working to make a positive difference to the individuals and families we support. We strive to be a strong voice, both for and with, the autism spectrum community. We also welcome those who have a concern that they or a family member maybe on the autism spectrum. We do this through peer & family support, information provision, advocacy, creating opportunities for social engagement and participation and education & training. These are key areas of work for our organisation.
Our membership consists of, people on the autism spectrum, parents, family members, teachers, volunteers and those working with people who are living with ASD and other additional needs in Galway city and county.
GAP is a registered charity and does not receive any state funding.
