Autism Berkshire - Event Article Image

Drop in at our Slough information and awareness event

Shoppers in Slough will get the chance on Friday to find out all about the range of services Autism Berkshire offers to people and families living with autism.

We will have an information stall at the YES Shop in the Queensmere Observatory Shopping Centre, off High Street, from 11am to 2pm.

Our chief executive officer, Jane Stanford-Beale, and our new Slough programme manager, Clare Johnson-Alem, will be at the shop, run by Youth Engagement Slough, so please come along and say hello if you are in the town centre.

The event offers the chance to get details of all our services, including home visits, workshops and support groups for parents and carers, along with leisure and social activities, such as our recently-launched siblings group, providing short breaks for children with siblings on the autism spectrum.

More than 20 children are taking part. They have already enjoyed trips to go bowling, trampolining and the cinema.

The initial 20-week programme is funded by the Didymus Trust, a charity that supports social inclusion projects.

  • There will also be a chance to meet Clare Johnson-Alem at our Slough evening support group for parents and carers of children with autism spectrum conditions, which meets tonight, Monday, January 30, from 7pm to 9pm, at the Aspire Centre, 350 Edinburgh Avenue, Slough Trading Estate, SL1 4TU.
