mASCot is a parent led peer to peer support network for families who have a child/children or young person with an Autism Spectrum Condition. mASCot brings families together and enables them to connect with others in the same situation as themselves. We are all families from the Brighton and Hove area, we benefit greatly from being able to share our experiences of navigating the same school systems and services. mASCot has grown to become a strong and caring network of self support, and a real lifeline for many. Members can participate as much or as little as they wish - mASCot is a resource that is always available - there are many opportunities for families to learn, to socialise, to access therapies and to take part in activities that are all specially geared for those living with ASC. mASCot is all about celebrating our wonderfully diverse families and allowing our children to be themselves whilst learning the skills to grow and thrive in the world.

Getting our voices heard mASCot works closely with the Local Authority, Services and Schools to raise awareness, standards and understanding of ASC and the difficulties families face every day. Families come to us with many stories of situations they have experienced and many worries about how their ASC children's needs are not always being met. We also hear stories of good practice and we are striving for this to become the norm in Brighton & Hove and that families become empowered to push and insist things change for the better. For us at mASCot to be able to feedback to the many meetings and boards we attend we need to build up data of all the current, continuing and new issues that families are experiencing. We need to get feedback on what families are dealing with whether it's good or bad so we can build up a clear picture of awareness in Brighton & Hove. If you have any feedback, however small it sounds, please fill in our Feedback form by clicking the image below.
please Help us to continue to provide all the support we can and to help mASCot help families living with ASC
