mASCot is a place to seek and offer support for our amazing diverse families. It is often hard to fit in or know where to start accessing the support you need when you have an Autistic child/children.

It can be even more difficult if English is your second language or you are Black, Mixed heritage, Asian and from varying ethnic communities.

Within mASCot we have a wide diverse membership and we want to make mASCot as inclusive as we can. We have a Culture Inc Sub Group for our ethnic members to bond and connect.


mASCot always loves to collaborate and link up with organisations and people who are already established in what they do best, Liz Sopers group A Seat At The Table works closely with children of colour or dual heritage and their families who require someone to listen, support, advise and advocate where necessary.
