Peer Support for Autistic Adults
At Anchor the focus is on providing peer support for autistic adults who do not have a concurrent learning disability. The aim is to facilitate access to social and wellbeing support in a safe and welcoming environment, where 'being autistic' is celebrated.
Sessions are facilitated by Charlotte, founder of Anchor and diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome in 2018. Charlotte set up Anchor after experiencing a gap in support available to herself post diagnosis.

Why is this group specifically for autistic adults who do not have a learning disability?
Being labelled as 'high functioning' can mask the often significant challenges faced in day to day life and act as a barrier to accessing existing third party support.
This group is aimed at reducing the specific lack of opportunity for autistic adults who do not have concurrent learning disability to meet and connect with other people with similar identities.
