mASCot @ The Children's Centre

mASCot are based at the Children's Centre, Portslade Library, Brighton and Hove.

We are at the Centre on Mondays and Wednesdays and Saturdays
You can find us here


Themed Coffee meets
These coffee morning will be based on specific subjects and topics that have been popular in the Members only group.

There is so much for us to learn when it comes to bringing up a child on the spectrum so we love a workshop that gives us strategies and new techniques we can use with our families.

We regularly invite people to come in to do  talk on things relating to Autism, these are always very popular.

Pre-School parent meet ups
Our monthly Pre-School meet ups is an ideal place for parents of little one, whether they have ASC or one of their sibling do, to come and meet for a coffee and chat with other parents. Plenty of toys in a child friendly space.

Open chat mornings
This is a chance to invite people along to join in on a casual morning of chat with our members. We invite people who work or have an knowledge of many different areas to do with Autism.

1-1 meet ups
We welcome members to come in at any point to have a 1-1 chat if they have something to ask, discuss or just need a fellow parent to talk to. Many parents use these times to get a good bit of 1-1 time thats just about their child, their family and their situation.

If you want to come in for a 1-1 or want to suggest any themes, topics for our talks, workshops etc, then please contact us.
