Although we had to close the doors to group activities across Coventry and Warwickshire on 20th March 2020, we have been busy delivering support throughout the lockdown and restriction periods, including:

  • Responding to any enquiries/requests for information and support via telephone and/or email
  • Delivering regular welfare check calls to those who needed them
  • Providing online education courses and peer support groups
  • Planning for a return to offering face-to-face support in Covid-secure environments

We are pleased to tell you of the following activities that we currently have available:

 

Peer Support Groups

Face to face groups:

Face-to-face groups – these groups have been temporarily paused during the current lockdown (January 2021). Please check back on the website as to when these will re-start.

Online groups:

Online groups are still running as follows:

Ladies Online Wednesdays 10am-11am
Nuneaton and North Warwickshire online
Thursdays 2pm-3pm
Coventry online

Saturdays 12.30pm-1.30pm

Our online sessions will be small groups, offered using Webex, providing people with autism the opportunity to virtually meet others across Coventry and Warwickshire. In order to keep the groups a manageable size, we ask that you only attend 1 online session per week.

Booking is not needed for our online sessions, please contact us for information on how to join via (024) 7771 4545 or caass@cwmind.org.uk

Autism Education Course

This programme looks at how adults are affected by autism; what challenges it brings (along with the positives); and where to seek support, with room for discussion and learning from each other.

At this time we are unable to offer these courses in a face-to-face capacity. We are currently offering these online.
