Are you an adult aged 18 years or older who has Aspergers, is autistic, or who has another similar neurodivergent profile?
Are you looking for a group of peers who share your experience who you can meet, chat to, exchange stories, advice, and experiences, and connect with?
If you answered "Yes" to all of these, we would love to see you at our new LGBTQIA+ peer support group!
Who is this group for?
Our LGBTQIA+ Group is for individuals aged 18 and older who are peers of the autistic community AND the LGBTQIA+ community.
We welcome adults at all stages of the diagnostic journey, including those who self-identify.
As this is a parent/carer-free zone, we invite any parents or carers to join our separate Parents & Carers Group.
When does this group meet?
Our LGBTQIA+ peer support group is launching in November 2022.
Our co-design committee are meeting in October to discuss the details of the group, including the group name and to decide on a day and time for regular peer support group meetings. The meeting format is likely to be online, however this has not yet been confirmed.
How can I register for the next group meeting?
To make sure we contact you when the details of the first group meeting are finalised, please add your name to our AV mailing list.
Visit the Join our AV Mailing List page, enter your first name and your email address, tick "Peer Support Groups - LGBTQIA+" as an area of interest, as well as any other topics you're interested in, and we'll include you in future emails.
If you would like more information, please email our AV admin team.
