Local Offer


The Autism Group offer special interest groups for young people aged 11 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 needed to do so. We can offer opportunities to help make those connections in a structured and understanding environment.  

Our Arts and Crafts group welcomes artists of all levels for familiar art and craft activities led by the interests of the young people who attend.
