New group in Annan for people with Autism

There is a new group for young people with autism spectrum conditions and/or disabilities in Annandale and Eskdale.

Young people taking part will be supported to build relationships, socialise with others, participate in a variety of activities, gain access to youth information and have the opportunity to get involved in working towards accredited learning opportunities such as Youth Achievement Awards.

The Council’s Community Learning and Development Team, Social Work Services, and Quarriers identified a lack of youth services for young people, aged 12 to 25, with autism spectrum conditions (ASC) and/or a disability.

Following on from two successful information sessions held for young people and their parents/carers, the new group will run weekly, from 7pm to 9pm. Attendance is free of charge. A tuck shop will sell refreshments.

Parents, carers and support workers are welcome to come along for a chat and a coffee in a dedicated space.
