PAACT is a Lincolnshire-based support group for families with members who are on the autistic spectrum. We are run solely by volunteers and each committee member has a child or other family member with an autistic spectrum condition or is on the autistic spectrum themselves.
Our aim is to provide advice, support and signposting to anyone with queries or issues relating to autism and associated conditions. There is no requirement for a formal diagnosis in order to access this help.
We are a very friendly, informal and non-judgemental group and run our regular support group meetings on the same basis. In addition to these meetings, we have a Facebook group where parents and carers can share their ideas and thoughts.
During term time and holidays, we run regular activities for our younger members: there is a monthly games club, a weekly youth club plus holiday activities such as exclusive use of Fun Farm, bowling, crazy golf, pizza making... the list goes on!
We organise training for parents and professionals, including Makaton, behaviour and an introduction to ASC. We are also available in our Lincoln office between the hours of 10am and 2pm daily to offer support and guidance.
