Counselling Directory was set up by a team who know how difficult it can be to find support.
The confidential service enables you to find a counsellor, with experience in autism, in your local area. All professional counsellors listed on Counselling Directory have provided proof of membership with a professional body, and have all relevant qualifications and insurance.
Each has an Autism Group. They are developing an autism page on their websites to give details of what they are doing for autism, as well as other useful information. These pages can be found via the following links:
Sportarray is a North Somerset Council initiative aiming to increase the number of people with a disability or long-term health condition regularly playing sport. We support clubs, coaches and volunteers to gain knowledge and skills to provide inclusive sport sessions as part of their club activities.

You can put in your post code and find a local opportunity. It also covers lots more sports that may be available over the border in a neighbouring local authority.
