Inaspectrum (Sutton)

 

“Inaspectrum Sutton” is a group that is organised by its members not staffed.  People are encouraged to share their life experiences and given a chance to meet like minded people. An experience shared can help reduce fear, anxiety and alarm.  They will encourage Autism services in Sutton to make clear their organisational strengths, many services have the best of intentions to help their client group, yet forget to make it clear what they offer and how their structure works.

 

Any adult with a positive interest in Autism /Aspergers is welcome to have tea with them; you don’t need a diagnosis or a referral. INASPECTRUM IS NOT A SERVICE it is a self help peer support group, we need fundraisers, a Membership Secretary, and enablers who can help us plan and achieve what we want to get out of life.

 

When: Usually last Wednesday of the month, 1.30-3pm, but please check (contact details below)

Where: Sutton Carers Centre, Benhill House, 1st Floor, 12-14 Benhill Avenue, Sutton, SM1 4DA
