Consultancy

BAAGS regularly consult with other organizations to help them to gain a better understanding of how they can improve the service they offer to people on the Spectrum. I.e., Employement Support Agencies, Youth Care Workers, Foster Carers… etc.

Any person recently given a diagnosis can contact BAAGS and we will meet with them to help them appreciate what that diagnosis may mean to the and to help them decide what to do next and what help and support there may be available for them.

Anyone wishing to talk in a one-to-one setting can contact BAAGS and we will be happy to arrange a meeting and help answer any questions.
