It is not always easy to find support as an autistic adult.
In our experience, autistic people do not always get the opportunity to access activities outside of their daily routine. Often there are limited services available to enable positive social experiences.
Our Social Space for autistic adults provides safe spaces to socialise with like-minded people and offers the chance to develop wellbeing strategies.
The group is open to autistic adults, whether they are diagnosed, self-diagnosed or waiting for diagnosis. Membership of the group is free.
Want to join?
As a member, you will be able to access:
- Regular Meetings - hear from people who have gone through similar situations to yourself.

Activities coming up include bowling and countryside walks.
There's also the opportunity to meet up as a group. You can choose to either join online via Zoom or you can meet in person. To join, please send an email to email@example.com to let us know that you’re interested.
