This group has been started with the aim of developing a social and support network for people of all ages with Aspergers Syndrome living in the Bristol, UK.
Health care professionals, support workers, social workers, and people with AS/ASD are welcome as well as partners who are married/attached to someone with AS are welcome.
It originally started with the aim of opening up to the whole of the South West but with time and man power not available, this isn't practical. If this group grows, other groups may be formed in areas away from Bristol.
The Bristol AS Pub Group has been running for over 10 years and this Meetup group was created to service this social group, and to spread the word.
The Pub Group is independent of any other organisation - however, this Meetup page is also used to advertise other social events for people with Asperger's Syndrome by Matt Jennings, who works for Bristol Autism Spectrum Service. Currently these other events include a Cinema Group and a Bowling Group.
Please note that the Pub Group, the Cinema Group and the Bowling Group are also advertised elsewhere, so the figure listed on Meetup for the total attending may not be accurate - there will often be more people attending than it says on here!
