Local Offer

Description

The Autism Group offer special interest groups for young people aged 9 to 25 who are on the autism spectrum.

Many young people on the spectrum have special interests which they would like to share with others, but lack the social skills or confidence needed to do so. We can offer opportunities to help make those connections in a structured and understanding environment.

Our Console Gaming Club is for ages 16 to 25 and welcomes gamers of all levels for familiar multi-player gaming activities led by the interests of the young people who attend.

This club runs fortnightly.
