The Sheffield Autistic Society is a local charity for people with autism (including Asperger syndrome) and their families.

We provide support and information, and we campaign for a better world for Sheffield people – children, young persons and adults – with autism and Asperger syndrome.

If you are the parent or carer of someone with autism, or if you have been diagnosed with autism yourself, you are not alone. There are around 700,000 people with autism in the UK – that’s about 11 in every 1000. Sheffield has a population of about 575,000, so it is likely that there are at least 6,000 people with autism in Sheffield.

Sheffield Autistic Society August Break
Please note that during the month of August the society will be taking a break from its normal meetings and activities. The whole committee are volunteers caring for family members on the Autistic Spectrum, and like other people they need a break! We hope you will understand. Don’t forget there is a great deal of information on the website, including about sources of support.
