“Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how people perceive the world and interact with others. Autism is a spectrum condition. All autistic people share certain difficulties, but being autistic will affect them in different ways. Some autistic people also have learning disabilities, mental health issues or other conditions, meaning people need different levels of support. All people on the autism spectrum learn and develop.

The Reverend Gayler and Marks Gate Community tell us about the work they do in our local area:


Big Society = Lots of Locals


The Church of England has been doing it for centuries.

The whole of England is divided into parishes with a person responsible for all the people living within the boundaries of that parish.  The average size is about 7000 people but with certain areas that can get stretched or increased.
