Peer Support

Talk to (or just listen to) other autistic people about the autistic experience of life.

We started providing online peer support during the pandemic, and for 2022 we will be expanding on this, and developing a new format

What is Peer Support?

Relaxed, informal discussions about autism and the conditions that can come with it, led by other autistic / neurodivergent adults.

How does it help?

Being able to share knowledge, information and experiences with other people who understand and have had similar experiences can go a long way to helping you feel more comfortable with those experiences, understand more about your own autism / neurodivergence, and develop coping strategies.

Do I need a formal diagnosis to join in?

No.  Self-identification is welcome, whether you began to identify as autistic / neurodivergent years ago or just yesterday.

How do I attend sessions?

Currently these are held fortnightly on Zoom.  During the next twelve months we will be trialling a new hybrid format so that those who live in the same area can meet up a few times a year.
