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.

Autonomy is a "social lifeline" for over 200 local people with Asperger syndrome and HFASD. We run regular free social events throughout the month and you are welcome to attend on your own or with your friend/carer/support worker/parent/partner (though as the majority are held in pubs under-18s must attend with a parent/carer/guardian).


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. Please click on the AutonomyPlus+ tab for more information and contact details.
