MAIN was established in 2002 to provide an after-school club in Middlesbrough for children with autism. We now provide services for children and adults with a range of disabilities throughout the whole of the North East. MAIN has a mission to help local people living with a range of disabilities by giving them the skills they need to live an independent life, while having fun and making friends. Which in turn gives their parents/carers a break from their caring roles.
