Multiple providers

Main information

Type of service: Play and leisure, Social groups

This Glasgow Social Group is for people aged 16 to 30 years, at the high-functioning end of the autism spectrum, such as those with Asperger syndrome (AS). Due to high demand there are currently 2 social groups for this age range in Glasgow. 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, CRB checked and trained by the 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. Please note that there may be a waiting list for this Social Group - contact the Social Programmes Manager for further information.
