Bridging the Gap South East

This organisation is run by parents for families who have an adult with an autistic spectrum disorder and/or challenging behaviour who live or work in the boroughs of Bexley, Greenwich and surrounding areas.

They meet on the second Monday every month at Emmanuel Church, Yarnton Way, Thamesmead DA18 4DR and often have speakers on ASD relevant topics.

They also have a social club for adults on the autistic spectrum which meets from 8pm-10pm on the last Wednesday of each month (except August) at The Carlton Centre, Carlton Road, Sidcup DA14 6AH.

Family members, friends and carers are also welcome. The club is informal and there is table tennis, pool, Bowling (on the Wii) and darts. Girls may also like a nail shape and paint. Refreshments are available and there is always a quiz and music.
