The autism social group has been running now for almost 20 years.
The group has recently been rebranded ALL FOR AUTISM.
Throughout the pandemic the group has provided a lifeline to its members.
With at its peak over 60 individuals have accessed the project at one time.
Due to the pandemic some members have lost their jobs, suffered terribly with their mental health.
Having the consistency of the group each week has really helped to bring them through some terribly dark times.
I am extremely passionate about the group and the benefit that it has on the local autistic community.
The group fills a void within the autistic community.
There are provison’s of all kinds for individuals on the spectrum up until the age of 25 after this, there is often next to no provision in place.
Which often leaves individuals on the spectrum aged 25+ with no where to go.
Which then puts these individuals at a potential risk of social isolation.
The worth and benefits of the group are priceless and I am extremely grateful for any support.
