Family Action

Norfolk & Waveney ASD/ADHD Support Service

Providing support and advice for families 

Family action is a charity committed to building stronger families by delivering innovative and effective services and support that reaches out to many of the UK’s most vulnerable people.


They provide:

  • Drop in support groups
  • Information sessions held on a monthly basis, e.g. understanding meltdowns
  • Plan Bee – a programme for families of children with differing needs. The course helps to think about the messages your child is trying to communicate to you and some practical skills and strategies to help you manage your child in a positive way
  • Cygnet – a 6 week course developed by Barnardo’s. It offers information on communication, sensory needs and understanding and supporting behaviour for your child with a diagnosis of ASD. Online sessions are available.
