Asperger London Area Group 

    ALAG runs a monthly support group for adults on the autistic spectrum living in the Greater London area although those from elsewhere are welcome. It is a chance to meet others to talk about common issues and to support and help each other. The first half-hour of the meeting is spent socialising and having refreshments. This is followed by the whole group sitting down together to discuss an agreed topic or to hear from different speakers who offer advice and guidance on issues relating to autism. These topics are planned in advance and any member can suggest a future topic. Some of the topics are listed below.

    The group meets on the first Tuesday of every month in Islington from 6.30pm to 8.30pm. Booking in advance for new attendees is essential. There is a small entrance fee of £3 (members) or £5 (non-members) to cover the cost of refreshments, including a vegetarian option.
    To find out more about ALAG or book a place to attend any of the meetings email: info@alag.org.uk
