As we emerge from the lockdown caused by Covid-19, we are starting to run some of our face to face groups and meetings as well as maintaining some of our on-line activity.

We are continuing to post information to our members weekly and further guidance about resources and information specifically relevant to autistic adults is being collated by the Sheffield Autistic Society and can be found here.

There is also information on the NAS website that may be helpful and that can be found here
