CAN Programme

CAAS are delighted to invite carers of children, adolescents and adults with ADHD and/or autism to our Nurturing Project. The project helps Harrow carers maintain their own health and general well-being and enables them to fulfill their caring role through recreational and therapeutic courses and providing advice and support.

This is a chance for carers to remove themselves from their caring role for a short time while also developing their skills and interests.

The project will be delivered in blocks of 4 sessions

The next CAN project will start on Monday 18th January and will run for four weeks. For further information please click here and to book, please click here.

Sessions will be instructor led using experienced guest speakers and facilitators. Example topics are crochet, floral art, nutrition, writing for well-being and mindfulness.
