There are lots of groups out there for support, information and social interaction - you are not alone!


Please take a look through the pages to find something of interest to you. If you are not finding something that you want, why not get in touch to discuss trying to set something up yourself with our help.


If you know of any groups that we do not list but would be of interest to local autistic people or their carers, please get in touch so we can support your group and provide the best selection for our users.

FREE workshops at Carers Support Centre

The Carers' Support Centre in Fishponds provides support, information and advice to carers living in the Bristol and South Gloucestershire areas. For further information, please take a look at

Information from the BaNES Carers' Centre - We now have a couple of new services:

  • Tele-Befriending

  • Community Carer Support Officers (Bath, Keynsham, Somer Valley, Chew Valley)


The idea of the latter is to build up a good relationship with the four areas, and make the officer recognised as a contact for carers in that area. It seems to be working!


You can still refer a carer via our homepage
