I AM Celebrating Autism in Greater Manchester

I AM provides support to children (over the age of 10 years) and adults who have a diagnosis of autism.

We offer one to one and outreach support to individuals. This support could be to undertake daily activities such as shopping, going to appointments or travel or simply providing a helping hand to get out and about and undertaken activities that would otherwise be too challenging. 

I AM also provides a wide range of social and leisure activities through our Aspirations project. All of our staff are trained in the particular difficulties associated with Autistic Spectrum Conditions. i

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

 Our current activities include:

  • Midweek and evening youth clubs for our younger members.
  • Weekly evening activities
  • Laser Quest, Bowling, Cinema
  • Meals out
  • Youth Clubs: Evening and weekend
