FACT (Families with Autism Coming Together).

Printer-friendly version

FACT (Families with Autism Coming Together) is a family run group in Ballymun. Its first and foremost aim is to provide emotional support to parents/guardians and family members of children & young adults living with Autism. The support group meets once a month in a safe & friendly environment to chat about the highs & lows of living with someone who has Autism. Over the years this has branched out into weekly fitness classes for the children. This has proved to be a wonderful social outlet for the children and their siblings, a safe environment for them to be themselves with no judgement. The group also has annual festive gatherings such as, Christmas, Easter & Halloween Parties that are sensory friendly. 

In the last 3 years the FACT Summer Project has also been a big success, in August the children have a fun filled two weeks full of activities & outings. This year the group adapted to the Covid-19 restrictions and the summer project consisted of day trips spaced out over the month of August whilst adhering to social distancing and local restrictions. It has been a great success.
