ALAG is a community organisation working in partnership with local authorities and the voluntary sector to highlight the needs of people with Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC).
ALAG provides valuable social and emotional support for autistic adults who do not have a learning disability but nonetheless can become vulnerable due to neglect and lack of support.
We are dedicated to seeking practical initiatives and solutions when supporting individuals to come to terms with their diagnosis and to providing the tailored support that is essential to their well-being. One such initiative is the Autism Hub, a user-led Islington/Camden initiative for autistic adults.
As well as providing information, advice and guidance to our members and supporting them to access services and engage with their community, ALAG also offers autism awareness training designed to improve conditions for autistic people to a wide range of organisations.
Our monthly meetings provide peer support with opportunities to discuss common issues as well as access to researchers and specialist speakers who give talks on a range of autism related topics at the meetings. Our members say they feel supported, understood and accepted as a result of their involvement with ALAG.
If you would like to find out more about ALAG or book a place to attend any of the meetings or events, please get in touch here.
