Parent to Parent (P2P) is the National Autistic Society's UK-wide confidential telephone support service providing emotional support to parents and carers of a child or adult with autism. The service is provided by trained parent volunteers, who all have at least one son or daughter with autism. The Parent to Parent volunteers are based across the whole of the UK, this means that there is increased anonymity for parents who may not want to share information with someone in their local area. Parents and carers can contact the service via phone or online. They can either call 0808 800 4106 at any time day and night and leave a message. It is not a manned line, but if they leave a message, a volunteer will call them back as soon as possible, at a time which suits them. Alternatively they can fill in their online enquiry form by visiting the Parent to Parent pages of the NAS website NAS P2P
