I AM Celebrating Autism in Greater Manchester (formerly ASGMA)

I AM Celebrating Autism aims to help children aged 10 and over and adults with autistic spectrum conditions (ASC) to develop a ‘tool kit’ of life skills, particularly the social and communication skills that are needed to successfully function in today’s society.

We have supported many hundreds of people in a variety of settings. All of our staff are trained in the particular difficulties associated with Autistic Spectrum Conditions. They are all experienced and trained at supporting this unique client group.

The project gives members the opportunity to socialise and make friends in a supported and protective environment.

 Our current activities include:

  • Laser Quest, Bowling, Cinema
  • Meals out
  • Youth Clubs: Evenings and weekend
