Notices 7.30pm It’s #CarersWeek. And the official message is “To the Carers in the U.K. and all over the World, please reach out to people and organisations when you need some help and support too.” Local services in this area are run by CRISP 01202 458204. We may not like the term “carer” but check this link and see how much applies to you https://www.crispweb.org/helpadvice/whatisacarer.aspx DAAS is for carers and supporters as well as for those on the autistic spectrum and we encourage you to join us and share your own thoughts and experiences. And some people do live life in both roles.
Main Event c7.45pm An Evening of Variety. Take your pick from several different activities or sample a selection. Or just come along to meet others or see what’s happening.

  • Art with Trish. This was popular last year and anyone can join in whether or not they are experienced or artistic or complete beginners.
  • Carole will run another session practising “The Art of Conversation.” This is a talking game which helps to develop enjoyable and effective communication. There are topic cards which promote discussion and encourage balanced, interesting conversations. A skill to use in social situations and help overcome any apprehension.

And Finally ..... Time after the Main Event to circulate, chat, seek advice or offer help and generally catch up.
