Description:

Autonomy for Women is a monthly social and discussion group for women with high ability autism and asperger’s syndrome with or without a diagnosis of the condition.

What we do:

  • Autonomy is a "social lifeline" for over 200 local people with Asperger syndrome. We run regular free social events throughout the month and you are welcome to attend on your own or with your friend/carer/support worker/parent/partner.
  • We produce regular newsletters and updates to keep you up to date with all the events and social activities we are organising.
  • Autonomy Shropshire is delighted to have been nominated for a Community Award in the National Diversity Awards 2015. We need more nominations to win the Award and the closing date is June 21st 2015.
  • Autonomy for Women meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month
  • sessions are facilitated and run by our Specialist Practitioner who has extensive experience in the education, support and employment of people with Asperger's syndrome and autism. Most sessions will include talks from “lived experience” members.
