Family Support is a free service for adults and the families of children with autistic spectrum conditions. We have two full time Family Support Officers working throughout Medway and Kent offering a wide variety of support services. This is currently funded by a Three-year grant from the National Lottery's BIG LOTTERY FUND. This Three-year period began September 2015.
Fundraising so far: The lottery funding stipulates that we raise £6,000 per year for the three years of the grant - a total of £18,000. In addition to this figure we plan to raise a buffer fund so that if we don’t obtain a grant straight away at the end of the three years there will be money available for Family Support to continue. We are aiming to raise 30,000 within the three years to help with any gaps in funding.
"I am walking 1,000 miles in 2018 for The Kent Autistic Trust because I want others to benefit from their support."
Jacqui is kindly raising funds for Family Support following her own personal experience with us, by pledging to walk 1,000 miles this year (all whilst working full-time, caring for her husband and running a home!)

"KAT Family Support have been a huge source comfort, encouragement and help".
Lee Harvey has bravely taken on the challenge of the 26.2 mile London Marathon to raise money for KAT Family Support!
Following his eldest son's autism diagnosis in 2017, Lee sought help and advice from Family Support and now wants to raise money for us to show his appreciation.
