C.A.R.E. Parent Support

Community Assistance Resource Enrichment (CARE) lies at the heart of all the services we offer at ASK.  Throughout the years, we have built a program, which targets the needs of families affected by a child with special needs.  Whether you’re a Mum, Dad, brother or sister, you’re sure to find something here that will satisfy your needs, on a social or personal level.

  • Would you like to meet other parents who are in a similar situation?
  • Are you overwhelmed by the daily responsibilities of raising a child with special needs or learning differences?
  • Are you looking for more information and support services for your special child?
  • Are you searching for a new programme or new learning techniques to help or improve your child’s learning?

Let us connect, build friendships, share experiences and support each other


Thank you so much for all your time and sharing your special story. It is so great to talk to another mother who understands and speaks the same language.

“I realized we had formed a cohesive group with each person an integral member, each contributing and each taking something out of it.”

” Thanks again so much for hosting the ASK support evenings. It cannot be underestimated what it means for all these parents (mostly mothers, yes I know – why is it that dads are so good at delegating going to these meetings? mea culpa too, by the way…). Having a child with special needs can become a very lonely business in any country and to hear that other parents are dealing with similar issues is very helpful, even comforting up to a point. “

ASK has been such an important part in our lives, allowing my son to have a wonderful time in a perfect environment and allowing me as a parent to have time to keep doing my thing when school is out, with peace of mind. The dedication of all the staff involved is amazing.

Parent Support Meeting

If you really want to find out what’s going on in your area in terms of special needs support, then you simply must go to one of our ASK coffee mornings!   Usually held on a Thursday of every month, these informal get-togethers provide a whole new meaning to “networking!”  This is where you will find invaluable insight from the experiences of other parents, who have “been there” already!
