Supporting Asperger Families in Essex (SAFE) is a parent support group for families whose relatives (of all ages) have this challenging condition. Many hundreds of people have made contact and find that talking to others with Asperger syndrome and their families, who share similar experiences and feelings, helps them cope. SAFE offers a valuable opportunity to exchange information on practical topics including how to claim benefits, obtain a statement of special educational need, how to access supported living and how to plan for the future.

SAFE works with education, health, mental health and social care service departments to improve and develop services for people with Asperger syndrome and their families in Essex.
