Other communities or forums that you can join to have your say on all sorts of issues or to meet new people are listed here:

Sheffield Autism Network

“We aim to bring all those with an interest in autism – either personally and/or professionally – by establishing an Autism Network for Sheffield. We hope that will be able to inform the work of the newly established 0-25 Young People and Children’s Autism Strategy Group and the Sheffield Autism Partnership between Sheffield Council, the local Clinical Commissioning Group, families and autistic adults.
Please use this Facebook site to post updates and share information. The Sheffield Autistic Society website will also publish details of the Autism Partnership Board minutes and any notices regarding the Network.”
