Our Social Groups

Autism Bucks Adult Social Group Meetings, where you can meet autistic people in a safe environment and:

  • Just sit and listen
  • Make suggestions as to what you want from the group
  • Engage in activities, if you wish to

There are two adult social groups, one in Aylesbury and one in High Wycombe.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and following advice from government, we have taken the decision to suspend our face to face group meetings, until it is safe for us to meet again. As an alternative we are using Zoom to provide shorter, online meetings.

It is possible to join in with or without video.

Meetings are every:

  • Second Wednesday of the month 11am -12noon and
  • Fourth Wednesday of the month 6.30pm-8pm

Some feedback from our members:

 “The group was one place where I felt like I did belong and was understood. Overtime this has helped enormously in getting to grips with my diagnosis – what it means and doesn’t mean – and taking steps towards accepting myself as I am”

“…of the various groups I have joined over the years, it is the first one where I have developed solid friendships with people who I now see outside of group activities”

“There is very little support for autistic adults locally, so these groups are a real lifeline for me and, I am sure, many of the others who attend”

What do we do?

We meet and share our experiences, successes and frustrationsSometimes we will talk about a particular aspect of autism, or current affairs

Occasionally we will have guest speakers, or will go on an organised visit – for example, we went on an autism-friendly tour of the Paralympic Museum

When we meet there are usually one or more trustees or volunteers who facilitate the meeting and provide moderation where required.
