Leeds’ Free Advocacy and Information Service for Autistic Adults

Leeds Autism AIM is a free service for autistic adults in the Leeds area who receive little or no funded support. We are part of The Advonet Group, an independent advocacy charity in Leeds.

We can support you to communicate your needs and help you to understand and stand up for your rights.

Information and Signposting

Whether it’s through our drop-ins, one-to-one or online, we provide information and signposting to you.

Resources

We produce free resources for you that can help with such things as accessing health services and expressing your feelings.

Post-Diagnostic

We are running a project to provide fortnightly post-diagnostic support sessions to autistic adults in Leeds.

Mentoring

We provide mentoring services to autistic adults in Leeds with little or no support who would benefit from some independent, autism-specific support.

This is support from an autistic member of staff to help you understand your autism and create life strategies.

Twice a week, we run sessions for booked appointments and groups at the Lovell Park Hub in Leeds.
