COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR DISABILITY –
Started by parents in 1996, ADHD Support Harrow became a registered charity in 1999 and began delivering services to meet increasing demand from parents of children with ADHD in 2002. In 2010 they adopted the support work of the former Harrow branch of the National Autistic Society. In 2015 a new strategy and a move across the border into Hillingdon led them to rebrand as CAAS. With over 20 years of running services, staff with personal experience, and most importantly, through talking and listening to ADHD/autistic people, CAAS has real understanding of the support needs of their clients. Services include specialised parenting courses, workshops and training, as well as social groups and practical help. In the last four years, they have gone from supporting 894 people in 2015 to 2049 people in 2019.
