What We Do

We:

  • Provide information and advice through a helpline, events, workshops, outreach, publications and newsletters;
  • Run accessible social and leisure activities for children and adults;
  • Provide specific autism training and support;
  • Work with education, health, emergency and employment services and the six main local authorities in Berkshire to deliver autism-appropriate services;
  • Raise awareness in the wider community to promote greater understanding.

Leisure and Social Activities

Autism Berkshire delivers a wide range of leisure and social activities for children and adults living with autism.

Children can benefit from our youth groups and longstanding favourites such as trampolining sessions and the Games Club, as well as the Lego Club.

Autistic adults enjoy meeting up at our social groups, the 197 Club in Reading, the Bear With Me group, which meets in Maidenhead, Hidden Pearls, which meets in Slough, as well as the Level Up Club, in Reading, where the focus is on video and board games. Young adults can also take part in extra trampolining seasons we have added to our programme.

Events for all the family are also available, with regular fun days at the Thames Valley Adventure Playground in Taplow, along with special events.

Volunteer

The generous support of our members, fundraisers, funding bodies and the public enables us to provide a wide range of services and support that delivers real benefits to people living with autism across Berkshire.

To continue this work we always need the help of volunteers to assist with everything from supervising activities at one of our children’s clubs to office administration.

We also need people to help us raise funds to pay for our services by organising fundraising events or being sponsored for completing a challenge.

And becoming a member of Autism Berkshire makes you part of a community of people in a similar situation and gives you access to extra services and activities and regular updates on our work.

Additional Info

Autism Berkshire was founded as the Berkshire Autistic Society in 1990 by a group of parents of children with autism, related conditions and challenging behaviours.

Today we are the leading autism charity in Berkshire and deliver quality specialist services, training and social and leisure activities throughout the county, guided by a team of trustees with personal and professional experience of autism.
