Join us for an informal and friendly coffee morning with Blagoje Vucinic (Mr B), Autism Post Diagnosis Support Worker from Autism Support Team.
This is an opportunity for parents of children with Autistic Spectrum Disorder(ASD) to ask questions about the diagnosis, to discuss practical strategies for meeting the needs of your children, to meet other parents, to share information and experiences, or simply just to listen.

SIV monthly coffee mornings are back!
You spoke and we listened!
We at SIV really appreciate that you took your time to tell us what you wanted out of our Chill & Chat coffee mornings. So we have taken it on board and have decided to make our Chill & Chat coffee mornings more age specific. We hope this will mean that you will meet other families with children or young people of a similar age and so in turn have more in common.
You can contact us for details of upcoming sessions by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
No need to book!
Being held at:
The Blue Youth and Community Centre
190-192 Southwark Park Road
It's a great opportunity to meet other families who really understand what life is like when you have a child/young person with needs
There are excellent travel links to the centre as well as pay and display along the road.

The Southwark Women’s Forum is a women-only support group for those aged 18 or above who have lived experience of mental health problems and who live in Southwark.
What can I expect from this group?
You can expect a safe, supportive space for women who have experienced or are experiencing difficulty with mental health.
Our aim is to connect the community with local services and events, as well encouraging participants to connect with one another. We like to give members an opportunity for honest, open discussion with women who can share similar experiences and also a chance to feed back their views of mental health services.
When is Southwark Women’s Forum held?
The forum meets once a month on the second Friday of every month, from 12pm – 2pm.
The forum also organises a walking group for women.
Where is it held?
This group meets online using Zoom. To take part you will need to make an account for yourself at the Zoom website, download and install Zoom.
After you have joined the group the facilitator will email you the details needed by Zoom to log in for a session. Five minutes before each the session starts, start Zoom, choose “Join a Meeting”, enter the details we have sent you. Each session uses the same details.
How do I join?
