Meet-ups offer opportunities to get help and advice

The Berkshire Adult Autism Support Service is launching free meet-ups to give autistic adults – and their parents & carers – the opportunity to talk through issues and get advice and information.

The first sessions will take place in Maidenhead from mid-February, with meet-ups in Reading starting in early March.

Separate sessions will be held for autistic adults and for their parents/carers.

Along with all other advice and help from this NHS-funded service, these meet-ups are open to people who live in Berkshire. We regret that funding rules mean we cannot support people from other counties.

Please register in advance if you plan to attend a meet-up, by using the links below, so that our team know who to expect.

Meet-ups in Maidenhead will take place in the café at the Marks & Spencer store in the High Street, on Tuesdays between 3pm and 4.30pm, as follows:
