Mendip Autism Support Group
(MASG) is a local parent run support group for parents/carers of children diagnosed with or having a suspected autistic spectrum condition.
Support is provided through monthly (term time) meetings with tea, coffee and a chat. The meetings are informal and provide support through shared experiences, advice and sign posting to agencies that may be of help.
We also run family events during the school holidays to encourage the children/siblings to socialise, learn new skills that encourage independence and promote self-esteem. Morning support meeting held usually on the last Monday of every month during school term, at Hillmead Community Hall, Shepton Mallet. Also, bi-monthly evening meeting held mid month on a Tues evening from 7.30pm- 9.00pm, at The Thatched Cottage, Shepton Mallett.
