ACCTing Out

Following the Government’s guidance, ACCT has made the decision to cancel all in-person activities until further notice.

We want to reassure members that ACCT will still be running throughout this unprecedented and uncertain time to offer you all support. We are in the process of moving activities online – see our page on our Minecraft Club, which will take place at the same time as our usual weekly ACCTivate and Teenage Club.

We have lots of ideas to move support online and will be working hard in the coming days to set this up. We will be available via email and the club mobile, and will be sending out regular emails and posting on social media to keep you connected.

We are aware that lots of our families are already isolated and self isolating is going to extend that further, along with the increased anxiety that many of us are feeling. We are asking all of you to please reach out to us if you need support and we will do all that we can to help.

Kind Regards
The ACCT Team

ACCT’s 18+ Support group offers supportive social activities to autistic young adults aged 18 and above. We run fortnightly activities normally on Monday evenings, to places like the cinema, to play pool, go for a meal, and more. Keep an eye on our news page or social media for upcoming activities.

The group runs supportive social opportunities that help young adults to get out of the house and participate in activities with friends and peers. The group aims to help boost the confidence and self-esteem of young adults, have a positive impact on mental health and build social, communication and life skills.

When the group has established itself we plan to introduce the young people to other support groups in Sheffield such as the A Team and Sapag.

The project is initially being funded through the money donated to ACCT in David Woodhouse’s memory, and is a project supported by David’s wife Deborah. We hope this new project is a fitting tribute to all the amazing work for good causes that David did throughout his life.
