Place To Be

We are excited to offer a range of clubs for children and teenagers: Lego, My Little Pony, Dungeon and Dragons, Book Club, Art, Gaming, Photography, History, and Hangouts. More to come!

Blasting Barriers

Parents of autistic children, whether the child has an ‘official’ diagnosis or is awaiting assessment are often dedicated to overcoming barriers for their child in all walks of life… at home, in school, in their local community. Our groups aim to connect, prepare and support you in advocating for your child’s needs and rights.
