We are a support group for autistic and socially anxious young people aged 0-25 and their families.

About Us

Our Beliefs

We believe in a world where every child can freely socialise. Our mission is to provide supportive socialisation for autistic and socially anxious children, teens and young adults. We facilitate peer support for parents, carers and families by creating a safe non-judgemental environment, encouraging the sharing of ideas, resources and support.

How we can help

Safe environment for all

  • We provide a safe environment for young people aged 4-25 to meet up and socialise, explore their feelings and gain peer support
  • We facilitate parental and carer peer support for the families of all aged children affected by autistic spectrum conditions (ASC) and/or social anxiety
