From 31/07/2020 The Avenue is closed.

There are several alternative support groups, Connect, SuperKids and Spectrum Support which you may not know about. Connect is run by Helen Backhouse and Zoe Rayner and is based in Stotfold. Usually they run a monthly support group but with Covid-19 these are not possible at the moment. They also run a fantastic closed Facebook page which supports families and offers great advice on all different matters. You can also contact them by email at connectgroupstotfold@gmail.com Superkids are new and were due to start support groups on a Saturday morning but then lockdown happened. Zoe Peacock runs the group and is holding Zoom meetings. To contact her for more information please email karen.burton@centralbedfordshire.gov.uk or call 0300 300 6009. Faces run Spectrum Support which is a parent-led support group for ASD and ADHD based at the CDC and the Church Lane Community Centre in Bedford. They hold meetings twice a month in normal circumstances. For more information please contact 01234 270601 or email admin@facesbedford.org.
