The support group is open to all adults (over 18) with Aspergers or high functioning autism. Members meet weekly in term-time and can take part in activities such as table tennis, badminton, table football and board games. During the morning they also have a structured time for discussions and have addressed topics such as employment, personal hygiene, depression and living with Aspergers.
The group aims to help develop individuals’ social skills and social networks and create a safe area where people are able to be themselves and discuss issues relevant to them in a structured and informal environment.
