We have lots of events running throughout the year. Please take a look at the following for more details below
The Curly Hair Project Workshops
The CHP workshops are ideal for those who care for, teach, or work with children and adults with Asperger’s or other ASDs, and they meet Continuing Professional Development criteria. They are also great for those with an ASD or not yet diagnosed, family members and anyone who is simply interested in knowing more. Written by the brilliant author Alis Rowe – ‘the girl with the curly hair’ - they last around 2 ½ hours and are relaxed, informative and uplifting with lots of great images to explain things.
Tickets are £15 per person (+booking fees) and can be purchased at http://thegirlwiththecurlyhair.co.uk/events/ where more information about the Curly Hair Project can also be found. I have attached 2 posters for you to share and display if possible, and you may wish to forward this email on to anyone else who would be interested.
The workshops are relevant for male and female adults and children and you can attend any or all of the workshops.

PiP and Universal Credit Overview event
There are a lot of changes going on in the world of Welfare Benefits at the moment and so we have asked Sue Lerooth of Citizens Advice Bureau to give Carers an overview of how Personal Independence Payment changes and the introduction of Universal Credit may affect the individuals we support.
This talk is primarily aimed at Carers of people with Learning Difficulties, Autistic Spectrum Disorders and Mental Health conditions however we will open it up to generic carers if there is not sufficient take up.
This event will take place on Thursday May 11th from 10.00am – 12.00pm at Clevedon Town Council Offices, 44 Old Street, Clevedon, BS21 6BU, places are limited so please let Lindsey Churchill (on email@example.com or 01275 398028) know asap if you would like to attend.
