    Adults Hub: Online / Phone Social Night

    Topic: Hoarding and Decluttering



    Our Adults group is for older members of the Aspergers autistic community and those with other similar neurodiverse profiles. It is more suitable for those who are aged 35 years and over, although younger adults are welcome to join in. (Young adults may prefer to attend our Young Adults group meetings as well as or instead of this group.) This month we are meeting online via Zoom.


    This month, we will be discussing hoarding and managing decluttering, as group attendees have expressed interest in finding advice and support in this area in previous group meetings. Our guest speaker, Jules Cliff, founder of Space and Time, will join us to present an overview of how clutter accumulates, strategies and advice to manage it, and she will also facilitate a Q&A session with the group.


    This session will be facilitated by the Group Leader, Colin. You can contact him via asadults@aspergersvic.org.au. All AV volunteer group leaders share the lived experience of their group participants and welcome new attendees. All AV group leaders have a Working with Children Check.

As this is a parent/carer-free zone, we invite any parents or carers to attend our separate Parents & Carers group.

    HYBRID EVENT INFORMATION

    In April, we are trying something brand new: a hybrid event! 

    We will have two meetings running at the same time on the same night, but in different formats:

    • an online event via Zoom
    • an in-person event at a community centre in Balwyn

    These events will run at the same time as separate events. Our YA team hope to be able to connect the two if possible, however as this is the first time AV has run a hybrid event, this may or may not work out on the night.
