Thank you.

Thank you to those of you who came along to the September social and life-skills evening.

We were very well attended….with numbers of around 14, and it was great

Lots went on: board games, painting, chatting, colouring and we even had a stand-up comedian DVD on in the background!

Our next evening is scheduled for the 17th of October 7pm until 9pm

After the success of the consultation evening, we are happy to announce the Social and Life-Skills evenings are going to be a regular monthly event!ย 

It is here!

The first of many social and life-skill evenings!
Come along to the Thicketford Autism centre in Bolton to have fun, socialise and learn new skills with other autistic individuals and their families in Bolton.

This is a drop-in session, so you can just turn up and stay for 10mins, or stay for the whole session!

Don’t forget there is also a family support group that we run at the same time as the social session. Designed for families members of autistic individuals to get together and chat and support one another ๐Ÿ™‚

BAAS is looking at setting up a monthly Social Activities and Life-Skills Training evening for the autistic adults of Bolton.

But to do that we need to know what kind of activities you and your family want us to provide!

Go over to our events page to find out more details or have a look at the poster below or log into our Facebook page!

Looking forward to seeing you there because we want to hear from YOU!


Last week our Befriending Service Coordinator attended a Befriending MasterClass hosted by Befriending Network.

Befriending Network is a national company who supports Befriending service by providing advice and training.

Rachel said, “It was a great way to network, learn about how other organisations run their befriending service, and learn what we are doing right (which I can happily tell you is a lot!) and how we could improve our service!”
