Eastbourne Asperger’s Support Group began in 2012 by William Lord, who is an Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome support specialist.
Since then, the group has grown in popularity and is now an autistic led support group, with generous support provided by Aspens Charities. This Facebook page is administered and run by members and service users who attend our group.
We hold regular group meetings every Friday afternoon in The Deerfold Centre with an average attendance of about a dozen members. Our regular Key Worker, Clive Sheppard is often on site and offers 1-2-1 private appointments by advance booking only. It’s best to establish yourselves as a regular member as demand for private appointments are high.
Our group sessions last for three hours between 2-5 pm and there is always a break time. The easiest ways to get to the centre is by bus using the nearest stop which is Carlton Road. The bus stop is located right outside the centre and is served by a number of local buses including The Loop.
Refreshments are available and we provide an array of tea, coffee, juice, biscuits and cakes.
We do hope to see you come along to our group anytime soon, the full address for The Deerfold Centre, is 233 Seaside, Eastbourne, BN22 7NR
