NB Over the next week or so, for technical reasons, the website is having to undergo some necessary changes. Generally things should work in the same way and the content is the same. But the site will have a ‘new look’ – please bear with us. It may take some time to get it right!
The Sheffield Autistic Society is a local charity for autistic and asperger people and their families.
We provide support and information, and we campaign for a better world for autistic and asperger people in Sheffield- children, young persons and adults.
If you are the parent or carer of an autistic person, or if you have been diagnosed with autism / aspergers yourself, you are not alone. Sheffield’s Autism Joint Needs Assessment says that, “It is estimated that between 8,500 to as many as over 20,000 people (all ages) in Sheffield could have an Autistic Spectrum Condition.”
Welcome to our website
The aim of our website is to bring practical help to autistic and asperger people in Sheffield, and to their families and carers, through relevant and accessible information. We try regularly to update and add more information to the site – or to direct you to places where you can get more information. See our Useful Links and special pages on Education, Support Services, Housing, Employment and more. At the top of this page you’ll also see links to pages about the Sheffield Autistic Society’s own activities and news.
