Our current programme of activities is a mix of on-line activities, weekly bulletins and some face to face activity including walks/picnics.
We are a group of adults on the autistic spectrum who meet socially on a regular basis either just to enjoy ourselves or to learn something new.
We are a diverse group of men and women who live in the Sheffield area. Some of us are parents, some work for local employers or are self-employed, others engage in volunteering and other forms of work experience and others still are studying.
For all of us, daily life provides very many challenges and we use a significant amount of energy in negotiating the social interactions required, from travelling about to shopping, to dealing with unknown and unanticipated events.
We have some regular activities which include a monthly meeting at a friendly city centre pub, a monthly walk in the area and a fortnightly snooker club and a monthly online social group.
We have other activities on a more occasional basis and these include:
- Drama workshops
- Bird watching
- Craft evenings
- Ice skating, Bowling, Crazy Golf
- Meals out together
- Theatre Trips
- Yoga, swimming and Keep Fit
- Discussion Group
- Day Trips
- Book Group
Some of us join in many of the activities, whilst other members come to one or two each year, depending upon their particular interests.
Being part of the social group has helped everyone develop more confidence and to grow a circle of friends, sometimes for the first time.
