Downpatrick Autism Family Support Group

Downpatrick Autism Family Support Group is a small registered charity based in Downpatrick, Co.Down. DAFSG was founded in 2017 by 2 local parents who felt there was no support for their families both before and after an Autism diagnosis. They joined forces and went about setting up a parent's support group.
