Understanding Autism as a difference, not a disability.
Asperger’s Children and Carers Together (ACCT) is a parent and carer-led support group for autistic children and young people and their families in Sheffield.
We run our Acctivate groups for children aged 5-12 on Saturday mornings and a Wednesday evening Teenage Youth Club, as well as ACCT Academy football coaching, and online Minecraft and Dungeons and Dragons clubs. Before Covid, we also ran an ACCTing Out social support group for young adults aged 18+, family days out, Autism-friendly family swimming sessions and other trips. We hope to get back to these activities as soon as we can.
We also run a fortnightly Parents’ Meeting over Zoom for peer support, information and discussion, as well as a way for new members to find out more about ACCT.
ACCT activities are open to members of ACCT – it’s free to join and activities are free of charge. More information about joining ACCT and joining activities is on our Membership page.
“A place where children can be themselves, make friends and have fun.”
