BANG value the importance of collaborative working and seeks to continue to collaborate to ensure the best possible outcomes for families and children.
Borders ASN Parent Carer Forum is working in partnership with Scottish Autism to improve the lives of Autistic community in the Scottish Borders. As part of this work we want to hear from Autistic Parent Carers to help shape the vision for Autism and we would like to invite Autistic parents to contact us to identify ways of engagement with them.
BANG are members of Youth Borders and we have previously worked in collaboration on several projects since 2016. We have worked on digital film projects, social youth outings (grass sledging, bowling, trampoline park and monthly morning sessions) and silent discos.
