Events and Groups

Coronavirus Update: 

Although we are currently unable to run any of our face-to-face events and activities, we are continuing to offer support, training and information to AWARE members via virtual group and one-to-one sessions. Our member-only Facebook group has a wealth of information on how to get through this challenging period, plus fantastic peer-to-peer discussions and support.

For more information, please see our newsletters and Facebook group

Do you wish there were groups and activities your child could access and join in with? Do you wish they could have fun with no judgement and pressure to conform? Do you need a safe space as a parent to chat and be understood?

AWARE runs many regular groups and events for children and young people on the autistic spectrum. Our parents tell us that the groups we run give their children opportunities to socialise, improve their social skills and  gain independence

We also have a whole host of parent and carer events for you to choose from.
