In Walsall we offer:
A befriending service for autistic adults
Through group and individual support, the service reduces social isolation and increases confidence and social skills in autistic adults.
The waiting list for our Walsall Befriending Service has now re-opened.
Are you wanting to meet with other autistic adults, learn more about autism and build friendships whilst doing fun activities together in both your local community and west midlands area? If your answer is yes, then joining one of our befriending groups might be of interest to you.
