Support for families and individuals in Sydney New South Wales
"I have been attending ACN Support Group meetings and at the social events run by the support group. ACN Hornsby Support Group members have walked with me and my son through the last 4 years of major challenges and tears, triumphs and laughter and most importantly the group feels like family to me. My son , who has problems forming and maintaining friendships, now feels at ease at the social outings with the group. He feels so accepted by the families in our group and looks forward to attending each month's social outing".

The Autism Community Network was established by the father of a boy with autism in September of 2011. Others joined in and brought their skills.
We now have more than 850 families (over 2,000 individuals) who come together on-line and 10 regions across Sydney to work on creating a society where people with autism and their families lead rich, full and rewarding lives.
To help us support the needs of our community, we have upgraded this website with the following features:
We don't charge carers to help you. We rely on fundraising and community support to survive. Please help us to continue doing what we do for so many families.
