MAROONDAH ASD 18+ Peer Support Event

We have now started an 18+ dinner for young adults with ASD which are becoming very popular, on the second Tuesday of each month.

The aim of these dinners is to enable young adults to integrate within the community, form friendships, potentially link in with other support available within the community and empower and educate them to know that they are very worthy participants in our community.

The current statistics in regards to individuals living with ASD are very alarming with employment, suicide, mental illness and inability to leave the house. Whilst we are aware we cannot fix all this, we aim to try and make slight improvements and this is the aim of Different Journeys holding these monthly dinners.

We run the 18+ ASD dinners in the Canterbury Room, at Club Kilsyth which is a private function room. Parents/carers are welcome to stay and have a meal themselves connecting with other families in the bar area of the venue, which is facilitated by a parent with children with ASD.

Bring along your device (iPad, iPhone etc) as there is free wifi to access and we run a Kahoot quiz after dinner. We also provide board games and card games that you can play.

The next event will be held on Tuesday 11th February 2020 (second Tuesday of each month).

You can now purchase your tickets (one per person, including support workers, parents and carers) via our online link from 4th February 2020.

Hopefully, we see you next month!

PLEASE NOTE – there will be NO event in January 2020. Our first event for the 18+ Club Kilsyth event will be on Tuesday 11th February 2020!
