Celebrating the strengths of Aspergers
Our truly unique peer-led, for-purpose organisation is celebrating Aspergers, celebrating strengths and celebrating 28 years of support. Since 1991 our model has been under-pinned by the power of peer support and lived experience, delivering sector leading peer programs and services to empower our neurodiverse Aspergers community.
We provide a range of member services across the lifespan from kids to adults, parents and carers, professionals and employers to support discovery of strengths and empower: by Aspies, for Aspies, with Aspies.
We have maintained our name with Aspergers due to member community requests. We understand and support how an individual describes their neurology is an individual thing. This may be person with Aspergers, Aspergers person, autistic person, Aspie and more for this diffability. Given our limited resources we focus our service for a specific part of this population who often face hidden but shared issues in their own way. We deliver empowerment through:

Getting a Diagnosis
Knowing whether to get a diagnosis or knowing what to do once you've received a diagnosis are challenging times, regardless of age or time of life.
Our people all have our own personal experiences of Aspergers and understand what you are going through, with access to knowledge of what may help. It is that lived experience that sets us apart - we're here to help.
Our vision is to create a more inclusive world for Aspergers. We believe that greater understanding and acceptance of Aspergers is critical for Aspergers people to discover meaningful and connected futures, while facilitating individual empowerment.
Our mission is to support all communities to improve their understanding of Aspergers and so empower Aspergers to have the confidence to realise their own strengths, abilities, dreams and ambitions - and discover independence - while managing challenges, across their lives.
We welcome and need volunteer support to deliver our services outlined here
Thank you to our supporters
