High-functioning Trafford provides social opportunities for children and young adults with high-functioning autism and Asperger’s syndrome.

We run a regular monthly meet-up at THE FUSE in Partington, where children have access to a range of facilities including computers, playstations, X-Box, a pool table and art/craft activities. We are a parent-led group and parents/carers will be responsible for their own child and expected to remain in the building whilst their child attends. However, there is a separate room where parents/carers can get together for a chat and to support each other. Our monthly meet-ups are aimed at school-aged children (5 – 16 years). Siblings are very welcome to attend too.
