LATEST NEWS: Next Meeting September 15th 2022
We will have a picnic at the next meeting (September 15th). It will be a bring and share picnic, and if it is good weather it will be in the forum area outside the community centre. If the weather does not co-operate we'll still have the picnic but inside. We will meet beforehand for those who can come a little earlier to decide what we will do, and to take some of the tables and chairs outside. We will, of course need help afterwards to tidy up and return the table and chairs to the AAM upstairs room. Please let me know if you plan to come and what you plan to bring. It won't be as much fun, for instance, if everyone brings crisps, so I can give you an idea if we have enough of a particular item or if we need that item. We will have fun!
You are very very welcome to come. We will require contact details which can be given as you arrive instead of ahead of time. We need this to comply with Covid requirements, and for our records to contact you about future events.
If you have already filled in an attendance sheet you do not need to fill it out again unless there are changes.
The third Thursday of September, the 15th is from 10:30 to 12:30. If you can help set up please contact me to come earlier or stay after, help is needed and appreciated. There is a subscription amount collected of £2.50 per person attending to cover room rental, but anyone who cannot afford it is not obligated to pay. Some folk kindly put in more than £2.50 and that is appreciated. It all goes into the funds for AAM.
With the lifting of restrictions against meeting in groups we can now have meetings of up to twenty people. We have had to move venue from Fallings Park Fire Station Jubilee Centre since it is now used for various Covid fighting procedures. The new venue, Wednesfield Community Centre, Bentley Bridge, is very reasonably priced, it has lovely volunteers looking after the place, and the room is ideal.
If you wish to talk one on one with me 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.- David H (on-line activities: the Gentle Knight).
We are a peer support group based in Wolverhampton for people aged 18+ who have an Autistic Spectrum Condition, including Asperger's Syndrome. The group is a self-run peer group 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.
Any suggestions for speakers or events are gladly received.
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 plan now to once again meet once a month in a community room this time in Wednesfield Community Centre, upstairs. There is a lift for one disabled person and carer if needed.
Please get in touch with us for more information.
