Adult Autism Matters - AAM

LATEST NEWS:

During the CURRENT NATIONAL effort to tackle COVID-19 (CORONAVIRUS), Adult Autism Matters group has suspended all future meetings with immediate effect. 

Please check again with us in three months, or if you wish to be contacted when we next start holding meetings or have any news, please feel free to contact us via text or WhatsApp with your e-mail address or home or mobile phone number.

If you wish to talk about Autism, Aspberger's Syndrome, or related matters, or you would just like to chat, please contact me. However due to my involvement with other charity activities it would be best to first send a text or WhatsApp message giving me some times you are available and I will get back to you.

We are a support group based in Wolverhampton for people aged 18+ who have an Autistic Spectrum Condition, including Asperger's Syndrome. The group is self-run with the assistance of volunteers. We welcome folk on the autism spectrum or with Asperger's Syndrome, or anyone caring for, living with or interested in those with these minority mind sets.

The group gives an opportunity for adults on the autism spectrum to meet up each month in a friendly, supportive environment to share experiences and useful information, take part in activities and hopefully feel more a part of the community.

Group meetings can involve arranged speakers, group discussion and activities out in the community - we are very open to suggestions for activities from group members. Carers and family members are welcome.

We meet once a month in a community room in Fallings Park Fire Station in the Jubilee Centre Room. There is a gate code for the Fire Station security, anyone wanting to attend should contact the group will need to get the code from the group.


Please note: Fallings Park Fire Station only hire the room out to the AAM Group for the purpose of this meeting, they are not part of the service.

Notes

This is a ground floor meeting room, and though there is a small doorstep with the assistance of another member you can access it in a wheelchair.

This is a secure location, so make sure you don't just 'turn up' without contacting us beforehand to ensure you can gain access. Plenty of parking available, however do not park on the right hand side where the 'modified' (partly broken up) vehicles are 'parked'. You would not wish for the firefighters to start practicing their techniques on your vehicle while you are in the meeting. You might find it a lot more difficult to drive home afterwards. Easily accessed by the number 11 bus from Wolverhampton Bus Station.

We do try to make this room autism friendly (e.g. no background music unless we have arranged in the future for a social activity). At the same time there is an intercom system to announce emergencies etc (extremely rarely used, but unpredictable).

Some members bring hot drinks/ snacks etc. No-one is obligated to bring anything, but anyone wishing to bring something you are welcome to do so.
