Emotional or social support
We are running online social groups to support autistic people and families across Scotland. Our online social groups are facilitated by staff and offer a place for autistic people to connect and talk about whatever they wish - from film and TV, to cooking, gaming, art and other interests. They’re a great way for people to build confidence, make friends and help with communication skills. It’s also a way for staff to provide tips on staying healthy and well during this time and helping people support each other. Free to join, the online groups are open to autistic people and families wherever you are in Scotland. There are groups representing different geographical areas, young people, parents, girls, as well as particular interest groups such as ‘Film club’. Staff aim to make the sessions fun, examples being virtual tours of famous landmarks, Zoos and aquariums as well as fun activities like quizzes and even making mocktails!
