STOP PRESS - CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 17/03/2020

There will be no meeting at Bournemouth University tonight.

In view of the latest government information we have made the decision to cancel all DAAS meetings until further notice. We know short notice cancellations are not ideal in a group like ours, but the situation has changed rapidly this week.

We instead invite you to support each other by sharing tips on the topic of “tips for coping with unexpected change”. There will be a post on the Facebook group tonight inviting you to do this or you can share by email to info@dorsetadultaspergerssupport.org.uk and we will compile a summary.

We will continue to monitor the situation and update through email and Facebook when the situation changes, but do get in touch if we can be of support at this time.

Meetings

We hold regular monthly meetings in Bournemouth and Dorchester

At our meetings, we offer a programme of talks and discussions about Asperger's. They are a chance for people to share their experiences and support each other.

All meetings are currently cancelled due to the coronavirus.

Poole drop in

Come along to our regular drop in at Rossmore Library, Herbert Avenue, Poole, BH12 4HS.

Find us on the first floor on the 1st & 3rd Friday mornings of the month from 11.00am to 1.00pm.

We regret the drop-in is cancelled due to the coronavirus. We will update you when it restarts.

About Us

We provide support and information for adults with Asperger's Syndrome and their carers, families, friends and supporters in the Dorset area. Download our leaflet

We hold regular monthly meetings currently based in two locations - Bournemouth /Poole and Dorchester - Where we offer informative talks and discussions relating to Asperger's Syndrome. Our meetings also provide an opportunity for people to share their experiences of living with the condition and its effects and to offer support and help to each other. For details of our current programmes and information about past meetings please follow the links on the left.

In addition we are actively involved with local Social Services and the NHS in shaping and developing the services needed by people with Asperger's Syndrome and in highlighting gaps in service provision. We take part in several different local consultative meetings to give practical, lived-experience input to the development of strategies and services that aim to help people with Asperger's Syndrome to live independent and fulfilling lives and that will sustain and support their families and carers. We also work to raise awareness of the condition in the local community and to champion the positive values, achievements and potential of people with the condition.
