Building a Brighter Future for All
We're a volunteer run charity who support autistic adults and children right across the North East. We aim to relieve the needs of autistic adults, children, young people and their parents, carers and siblings by providing facilities for play and recreation in the interests of social welfare in a safe and secure environment, and by providing support and practical advice to parents and carers.

Lego social groups
These sessions are all £3 per family
Lego building blocks offer a highly routine, repetitive structured form of play that many autistic children find appealing.
These sessions will help children of all ages gain skills in both verbal and non verbal communication, sharing, turn taking, collaboration and other social skills.
Parent support sessions
These sessions are all £3 per person
Our parent support sessions have speakers come in on different sessions with lots of useful information.
These sessions are a great way for parents to share experiances, give advice, recieve advice and support each other.
