Peer Support

Connect with other autistic people without leaving your comfort zone, communicate your way, Peer Support for Autistic Adults, online group for autism adhd, spectrum conditions, UK based autism 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 it has proven to be a friendly way to acknowledge and discuss the autism and its effects for autistic people

What is Peer Support?

Relaxed, informal discussions about autism and the conditions that can come with it, led by other autistic / neurodivergent adults.Peer support is not a replacement for specialist mental health support, but the benefit of knowing that you are not alone and that other people understand the difficulties you have experienced can have a really positive impact on your emotional wellbeing

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.
