We provide support and information for adults with Asperger's Syndrome and their carers, families, friends and supporters in the Dorset area
We hold regular monthly meetings currently based in two locations - Bournemouth /Poole and Dorchester - Where we offer informative talks and discussions relating to Asperger's Syndrome. Our meetings also provide an opportunity for people to share their experiences of living with the condition and its effects and to offer support and help to each other. For details of our current programmes and information about past meetings please follow the links on the left.
In addition we are actively involved with local Social Services and the NHS in shaping and developing the services needed by people with Asperger's Syndrome and in highlighting gaps in service provision. We take part in several different local consultative meetings to give practical, lived-experience input to the development of strategies and services that aim to help people with Asperger's Syndrome to live independent and fulfilling lives and that will sustain and support their families and carers. We also work to raise awareness of the condition in the local community and to champion the positive values, achievements and potential of people with the condition.
