Main information

Type of service: Social groups

Social Groups are for people over the age of 18 at the high-functioning end of the autism spectrum, such as those with Asperger syndrome (AS). The groups are facilitated by a Session Worker 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. The group meets twice monthly on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month. Please contact Beth Jones about joining the group, available places may be limited.
