Our Social Groups are designed to provide social opportunities to adults with autism who are looking to develop friendships within a supported and structured setting. Within the groups, individuals learn social skills and gain greater self-esteem by developing an independent social life away from their family unit. Group members are encouraged and enabled to decide, plan and organise social activities with the support of our experienced staff team.

Evening Groups

Our evening social groups typically take advantage of the local community facilities and members will be either visiting restaurants, the cinema or other local leisure activities. Sessions are generally supported by two members of staff and take place across Bedfordshire: 

BEDFORD - Fortnightly

LEIGHTON BUZZARD - Monthly
