Thanks to funds from ADRA UK, ASNA has been able to provide training for the volunteer carers who support ASNA activities. The support provided by these volunteers is crucial to the work of the charity. ASNA provides respite care for many parents, carers and other family members looking after relatives and friends with disabilities, long term illness and mental illness.

Caring for adults or children with special needs and disabilities can be very stressful and challenging. People from all walks of life and backgrounds are carers - over 3 in 5 people in the UK will become carers at some time in their lives. Caring can be a rewarding experience, yet many face isolation, poverty and ill-health.

ASNA Volunteer carers provide much needed respite for Carers. Respite allows the opportunity for Cares to recharge their 'batteries' preventing the risk of ill - health.

Volunteering for ASNA involves enabling a child or adult with a disability or special needs to access the many services provided by ASNA. Services for carers includes - short breaks, family fun days, music therapy , music workshops, activity weekends.

During these short break / respite events, Carers have the opportunity to interact and socialise with other carers and support workers thereby reducing the risk of isolation.

ASNA Carer weekends are also supported by volunteers. Workshops on self -help programmes, employment and caring issues provide Carers with social, physical and mental/ emotional support boosting self esteem and providing advice and information for those seeking work opportunities.

ASNA Carer weekends reduce the risk of poverty for many Carers.
