We are an unincorporated association aiming to continue supporting autistic adults in Plymouth.
Autistic Adults in Plymouth took over the ‘Autism Hub’ in August 2019, following lack of funding. We wanted to continue a regular meeting place where adults were able to socialise in a calm and respected setting.
Solialising as an adult can often be very difficult and being autistic often makes this harder due to anxiety, communication difficulties and over bearing environments. A lot of members found this was their only time away from home to engage with other people.
We have chosen to run on an informal basis where members may spend their time with what they feel comfortable with – whether that be play a board game, draw, or simply people watch.
