National Autistic Society Night Out!

Recently, we’ve had a brush with autism as we go down the diagnostic route with my oldest son. I’ve been lucky enough to be supported on my journey by local business owners MaFt (from MaFt’s Computer Repairs) and Laura (from Great Shakes). Here is what MaFt has asked me to share with you today…
As your local, volunteer-run NAS branch we provide support to adults and children on the autism spectrum as well as parents and carers. We run support groups in Bingley and Keighley, arrange outings and have a large library of resource books, magazines and DVDs. You do not need to be a member to use our services so feel free to come along to one of our support groups.
Event info:

This year we have been concentrating on raising funds and on 28th November we are holding a Big Night Out at Pennington’s Octagon Live with live music, casino, comedy, table magic and a grand prize draw. Tickets are only £15 and include supper – full information and ticket sales can be found on our website:

Throughout 2016 we will be using the funds to help our local families and will be discussing ideas over the coming months. Ideas include part-funded trips out and holidays, autism-friendly swimming sessions and more – depending on what our families need.

We have two regular support groups. The Keighley group meets at Lavender Fields on the 3rd Monday each month from 6pm-8pm and the Bingley Group meet at Great Shakes every Monday from 10am-12noon term-time. Both groups are free and all are welcome to join in discussions and listen to visiting speakers.
