What is SIGNAL Family Support?

We're a parent support group for autistic children and their families in the borough of Lewisham, South East London, UK, and occasionally for families in neighbouring boroughs. Established by parents, and run by parents for parents, we've been going since 1993. And from the original 20 families we have swelled to over 200, and now also include some interested schools and professionals as members too.


It's a vibrant community here at SIGNAL. We work in lots of different areas, and with many different local groups, to try and improve the quality of the lives of our autistic children - educational, socially and emotionally - no matter where they are on the spectrum.


Equally, we make efforts to support the whole family, so there's a strong focus on supporting parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and of course, the siblings of autistic children too, who face their own challenges.


So, if you're a family in Lewisham with an autistic child, and you're looking for a community to join so you can be supported, and in turn support others like yourselves, you've come to the right place. You are very welcome to come along to any of our Thursday evening meetings or coffee mornings and find out more, or just download a membership form and post it off.


if you'd like to chat to someone before attending an event, then please feel free to call or email us - go to Contact Us for details.


Enjoy browsing the website.
