Face2Face Befriending is a peer support service offering families in Sussex support around the time of diagnosis or new challenges.
Initially the coordinator sets up a home visit and parents are then matched with a befriender. Face2Face can support parents flexibly for up to 6 months. This might range from weekly to less frequent visits or just keeping in touch via text and email.

Face2Face support groups
As well as one to one support, Face2Face also runs groups. These include:
- a dads group (monthly on the last Thursday of the month)
- a club for under 8s with autism or going through assessments (on the second Saturday of the month)
- a breakfast club once a month on varying days and at Al Campo Lounge (contact: firstname.lastname@example.org )
We also support a PRESENS (preschool special educational support service) group for under 5s every term-time Monday.
