Please note due to the current Coronavirus crisis across the UK all of the Autonomy meetings in pubs and leisure facilities are cancelled for March, April, May and June as they are all closed. This website will be updated when we have more information about our social events. The May Issue 99 newsletter will still be sent out but will not feature social events. We hope to have news in the July Issue 100 newsletter about when we will run our socials in pubs again.

In the meantime we are still supporting our members via the phone, email, our Shropshire Autonomy Group Facebook page and Messenger and also WhatsApp. We will try to run virtual meetings as well via Skype and Zoom so we can still aim to socialise but not in groups face to face.

Wishing everyone all the best and follow Government and NHS advice about staying safe and well.


Welcome to Autonomy, an independent, self-funded, Shropshire and Telford based self-help and social group for young people and adults who have Asperger syndrome (AS) or high ability autism (HFASD), (diagnosed or undiagnosed) run by Sara and Eric Heath who have personal experience of Asperger syndrome. We have been offering support, help and social events since January 2004.


Welcome to AutonomyPlus+. We offer pre-diagnostic assessments, advocacy, student mentoring, support and help with benefits applications, appeals and tribunals, and bespoke training sessions on many issues to do with autism and Asperger syndrome.
