Internet course helps autistic adults in Bracknell stay safe online

Autistic adults living in the Bracknell Forest area are being invited to attend a free workshop about Staying Safe on the Internet next week.

The evening workshop is on Wednesday, November 15, from 6.30pm to 9pm, at the Willows and Maples Children’s Centre, in Priestwood Court Road, Bracknell, where our adult social group meets.

It will be an informal and interactive event, taking a look at a range of subjects, including using social media, keeping your personal information safe on the Internet and understanding things to be on your guard against, such as cyberbullying and scams. Advice on where to get help if things go wrong will be included.

There will also be a look at the positive side of the online world.

Autistic adults aged 18+ living in the Borough of Bracknell Forest are welcome to attend the workshop, which draws on material used in Staying Safe on Social Media courses we ran earlier this year for residents of Slough and Windsor & Maidenhead.

If you would like to take part in the Bracknell workshop, please email Autism Berkshire’s development worker, Garrick Rahal, as soon as possible at or call the Autism Berkshire office on 01189 594 594 and leave a message for Garrick, including a telephone number.

A pizza supper will be provided for participants.
