Welcome to the SAAS (Staffordshire Adults Autistic Society). We were set up by Founder Kevin Healey to provide information and support to others in the Stoke-on-Trent & Staffordshire area.

SAAS is the largest adult autism charity in the UK. We aim to provide support to adults on the ASD spectrum and offer a range of services including:
-Arranging social activities
We also operate Autism Radio UK, a radio station run by our ASD volunteers. Find out more at Autism Radio UK
We are currently offering office-based training to ASD adults (18+) . This is intended to be a starting point for those who wish to acquire work/volunteering placements but feel that they lack work experience. This training would consist of all office related tasks such as making/taking calls, using office equipment including computers, filing , etc. We will also offer help with CV-writing and interview techniques.
*Social Group and Support Group
We are looking to start an activity group for adults on the ASD spectrum. We will arrange outings and get-togethers to provide the group’s members with the opportunity to meet, socialize and have fun. We are also looking to start a support group for ASD individuals and their parents/carers to meet and discuss their shared issues and experiences.
We are looking for contributions for our new monthly newsletter. If you would like to share your thoughts or experience as a person with ASD, or a family member/carer of a person with ASD, please contact us. We are also looking for artistic contributions from Autistic and Asperger’s individuals. This can include poetry, prose, photographs, paintings, etc.
If you are interested in any of this above please contact us on facebook, via email, telephone or by post.
