About the Organisation

The club meets on Tuesday evenings at a venue in central Bath.
Age range: 8-14 years 18.30pm-20:00) 14-21 years (20:00-21.30)
The groups are for autistic children and young people.
The club aims to give the children and young people a safe space to practice their social skills and make friends, as well as helping them to try new activities such as cooking and crafts. We also do trips out into the community such as going bowling or out for a meal; these activities allow children and young people to practice managing their own money as well as a chance to learn the different social rules for the different environments.
Please note that this club does not operate a drop-in facility.

How do you aim to meet the unique needs of the child?

The club is run in an autism friendly manner. All staff and volunteers receive extensive training in Autism Awareness, SPELL and Person Centred planning. We work together with the autistic young people and their families to work out how to support them to ensure that their needs are met. Group sizes are kept small and operate on a members only basic so everyone knows who to expect at club. We delivered 40 sessions a year spread out across the year so members are able to access the club sessions during school holidays as well as term time.

How do you promote positive relationships and ensure good, ongoing communication with families?

The club leader arranges a video call / home visit with new members and their families to meet them. Members will receive a pack in the post providing photos of the venue and the adults who help at club.
Members receive a monthly schedule that shows all the planned activities for the month.
The club leader also sends a weekly email and text messages to keep in touch with families and members.
