      Partners Group: Online Meeting


      About our Partners Group

      Join our Partners Peer Support Group to meet other adults who are or who have been in a relationship with someone who has Aspergers, is autistic, or has a similar neurodivergent profile. Sharing experiences within the safe environment of our peer support meetings can be a lifeline, and sharing with people who have similar lived experience is validating and often educational. Your partner may be self-diagnosed or have a formal diagnosis, and you may share a household or live separately. We are an inclusive group and welcome partners of all genders and relationship types.


      This month, we will be talking about building your own tool box of practical skills and self-care around living with difficult emotions.


      This session is facilitated by our Partners Group Leaders. All AV volunteer group leaders share the lived experience of their group participants and welcome new attendees.

            Anyone wishing to attend an AV activity must register before attending.

            For in-person events, this allows us to ensure that we have enough volunteers attending on the night to support the group and to ensure that the venue can safely accommodate all attendees.

            In the event that the activity is cancelled or transferred to an online meeting, we will only be able to let you know if you have registered.

            NB: Unregistered attendees may incur an admin fee of up to $10.
