South Glos Aspies
Welcome to South Glos Aspies!
We are an Autistic led social group of Autistic adults, who like to meet, network and socialise with each other.
We meet weekly in Thornbury, Yate and Stoke Gifford in South Gloucestershire, UK
What is with this "Aspie" thing? Autism or Autistic Spectrum Disorder ("ASD") or Autistic Spectrum Condition ("ASC") as it is now known, was traditionally broken down into many subtypes. Aspergers is one of these subtypes (which is incidentally, no longer used in medical terminology, but continues to be used colloquially). "Aspie" to many, is friendlier sounding word that can be used to describe a person on the spectrum; which is why it was chosen for our group name.
Our group is open to anyone on the Autistic Spectrum (formally diagnosed or self diagnosed) and anyone who likes to socialise with those on the spectrum.
We are a friendly, inclusive, group and wish to make everyone welcome.
Please use this page to find out a little about ASD/ASC and our group.
South Glos Aspies as of 2021, is now part of the Diverse UK "family" - a wider Bristol area collection of autistic led groups.
