Autism appeal.

Caring volunteers are urgently needed to help people with autism living in Newcastle.

The National Autistic Society is running its second annual training course for volunteer befrienders in Tyneside.

Those wanting to go along don't have to be experts in autism. They just need to be reliable and willing to learn.

The session is taking place on four consecutive Thursdays starting on April 28.

The befriending service is a new initiative being developed in Newcastle by the society.

To find out more about volunteering as a befriender or about having a befriender for someone in your family, contact Sheila Crawford on (0191) 226 3615.
