ARCOS Family Support and Information Line (AFSIL)

The ARCOS Family Support and Information Line (AFSIL) is available for families and others involved with helping children and young adults who have special or additional needs.

This additional ARCOS service was set up in response to issues raised by a survey carried out by ARCOS. The survey was based on experiences reported by parents and their children during the first COVID-19 lockdown in 2020. 

The findings were summarised in a report called Scarcely Special  which can downloaded HERE.
