Preventing crisis

​​Connect Support Prevent sessions in Sunderland and South Tyneside are held weekly.  At these sessions individuals can discuss any issues or concerns they may be having.  Members can either drop-in or arrange a one to one appointment.

We connect with autistic adults and offer an autism friendly environment where individuals can be themselves and reduce social isolation.  We can support autistic adults with challenges they are facing in their lives; including support with:

• Independent living skills

• Making phone calls

• Writing letters and emails

• Housing issues or problems

• Connecting with other professionals in their lives; supporting effective communication  

Our Connect Support Prevent sessions are open to autistic adults, without a learning disability, both pre and post diagnosis.  Our AIM is to provide preventative support so that individuals do not find themselves in crisis situations.

Connect, Support, Prevent for Women

Autistic ladies both pre and post diagnosis are welcome to come along and enjoy the company of other autistic ladies in a safe and welcoming environment. 

Referrals for all sessions can be made by either:

Self-refer: which means contacting us yourself


be referred by another service or agency: which means someone contacts us on your behalf

Once a referral has been made we will contact you to arrange an initial meeting

At that meeting, we can get to know each other, assess your needs and establish if AIM is the right service for you
