    Description

    Social Groups are for people over the age of 16 at the high-functioning end of the autism spectrum, such as those with Asperger syndrome. The groups are facilitated by a Social Programmes Manager who is responsible for a number of groups in their area. Social Groups are supported by volunteers who are recruited, Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) checked and trained by The National Autistic Society (NAS). Volunteers come from all walks of life. Social Groups are membership groups which meet monthly, and activities are discussed and decided on by group members. Social Programmes Managers and volunteers then support the Social Group members to make things happen. Activities can include going to the cinema, meeting up in the pub for a drink, going for a meal, visiting a museum, or meeting up as a group for a chat or to play board games.
