About Sparkle Sheffield
Started by parents of autistic children, Sparkle Sheffield exists to help families with autistic children meet the challenges they face, feel less isolated, less frightened and more empowered. Autism affects families in different ways but only the parent of an autistic child can truly understand what life is like for us.
Started as a community group in September 2014, Sparkle has 122 members, no paid staff, 15 volunteers and 3 Trustees. We are currently reorganising as a Charity. Every member is an expert in living with a child with autism and have experience of the level of support and help they receive from special needs support, from education and health agencies. Sparkle Sheffield gives them the opportunity to use their hard earned experience and knowledge to support other autistic children and their families and hopefully benefit from others families’ experiences.
