Autism Family Support Association

Welcome to AFSA

The Autism Family Support Association Inc. (AFSA) is a community based volunteer group representing those in Victoria who have a family member/s on the Autism Spectrum.


Who are we

AFSA is the collective voice for autistic people with complex and high support needs and their parents, carers and families.
We provide fellowship, peer support and information.

AFSA actively raises our community’s concerns with state and federal government policy makers to achieve better services and outcomes for autistic people and their families.

Via our website, social media and meetings AFSA provides links to contemporary evidence based information and resources, networks and support services.

AFSA is managed by a voluntary committee. We represent lived experience and speak on behalf of our autistic family members and their loved ones. We partner with like organisations to share our experiences and information.

A little bit

About Us

AFSA was formed by a group of parents and has been a respected and valued member of many federal and state government reviews and working groups representing the family perspective – the ‘lived experience’. This involvement has been instrumental in advancing awareness and understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder by policy makers, service providers and the community.

The work of AFSA is limited only by the size and expertise of our committee. Parents, carers and family members are encouraged to join our committee and help make AFSA’s voice even louder.


AFSA Events

As the community moves out of COVID restrictions the AFSA volunteer committee has been able to advance several projects.

My Say AFSA Members Survey 2022

Help AFSA to prepare a profile of our member families – where they live and what services and supports they access.  Our Mail Chimp survey should take 10 – 20 minutes and can be accessed here.





Here is a quick look at what AFSA is currently involved with – who we are meeting with, submissions we have prepared and any major announcements important to Victorian parents, carers and families.
