CAN Programme


AASH 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 on the following dates:


Mondays from 12.30pm till 2.30pm on 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd March


Tuesdays from 10am till 12pm on 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th March


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