Bristol Autism Support plans for 2020

Weekly Drop-ins
A weekly, term time drop-in session for parents and carers in South Bristol at the Bedminster Quaker Meeting House. These will take place on Wednesdays from 10am – 12pm, and will provide parents and carers with an opportunity to get very regular support with any concerns they have about their autistic child. 

Weekly Activities
After the weekly drop-in sessions, from 12pm – 2pm, we’ll have a rotating schedule of activities including a craft group, help with benefit and EHCP forms, wellbeing activities and support from local professionals.

Coffee mornings
Coffee mornings from 9.30am – 11am on the second Tuesday of each month at St Peter’s Church in Henleaze, and on the last Tuesday of the month at Cafe Des Amis, inside Easton Community Centre.

Evening meetings
Evening meeting will take place at the Bedminster Quaker Meeting House on the third Wednesday of each month from 8pm – 10pm. We will have guest speakers at some of our meetings and discussion topics at others.

Parent courses
We will continue to run our very popular What Do I Do Now? 6-week course for parents and carers new to autism. This will run three times in 2020, in February, June and November, at Knowle West Media Centre. 

Family socials
In 2020 we will have a family social every other month. Our family socials are held at the Bedminster Quaker Meeting House on Saturdays and feature a family activity or performer, plus toys and other activities. Two of our family socials will be ‘autism jams’ which will provide an opportunity for our children (and parents!) to perform in a casual, open mic format.
