We have a lot of things planned for next week at our two Hub sessions for autistic adults in Leeds, including another guest speaker. Here is a breakdown of what is happening at the Lovell Autism Hub and Friday Autism Hub:

First up at Lovell, the Leeds Autism Diagnostic Service (LADS) team are in from 3:30pm to 6pm for their monthly consultation session. It’s open for people who are seeking an autism diagnosis or wanting to know more about what a diagnosis actually means.
To mark Leeds Safeguarding Week 2017, we have some information available about the Safeguarding Scheme. We’ll have free leaflets available across the Hub.
Carers Leeds have their monthly Carers Group for parents, carers and partners of autistic adults in Leeds from 5pm to 6:30pm. The group is a supportive one where carers can talk about issues they experience.
