To improve our parent/carers wellbeing and give them a little respite The Avenue is now able to make available some small carers tokens up to a value of £50.00.
These tokens can be used for services such as exercise classes, swimming, massages, training/online courses, relaxation therapies and more.
Our Carer Token folder with full information, application forms and terms of scheme are accessible at all of our support groups.
To qualify for a carer token the parent/carer must meet the required elements as detailed in the ‘Terms of Scheme’.
The Avenue relies on its own fundraising to provide this service and therefore may only have a limited allocation of funds each year.
The Avenue’s services are only accessible to families who have a child under 18 either diagnosed with autism or in the autism referral system.
