The National Autistic Society (NAS) Youth Group meets once a month between 6-8pm for various activities, including bowling, baking, laser quest, ghost walks, theme parks and much more.

NAS helps teenagers with autism and Asperger’s syndrome aged 10-19 develop skills and confidence in a small group environment.

The group currently has four members but can accommodate 10-15. Sessions cost £10.

NAS is also in need of volunteers to help out during the sessions.

Ideal candidates would have previous experience working with autism spectrum teenagers or be keen to develop a career in this area.

Training will be provided and a CRB check will be required.
