To request a place, email for a booking form to secure a place, places are limited, they will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.


TTHT ‘Out & About’ in the community:

TTHT understand through feedback received from families that it can be pretty tough, when your ‘cup is already full’ to come along to somewhere new and access support for the first time with people you have never met before. That’s why the team are so passionate about finding ways to break down those barriers and get ‘out and about’ in the community so families can meet us, have a chat and feel comfortable and reassured to come along to access our services at the autism hub.
TTHT decided this summer, they would add to the many ways they do this by planning a local ‘Walk & Talk’ event. This is a chance for anyone to meet them and join the TTHT at the Autism Hub Team on a relaxed walk and talk along the South Shields Coastline.
Date: Wednesday 17th July 10am – 11am.
Full details can be found on the poster here. No booking is required for this event.
