​​The Autism & Asperger Society

The Autism & Asperger Society in St. Helens is a non-profit, voluntary organisation.

We provide a drop-in social group for adults with Autism and Asperger's. We encourage social interaction with like-minded people, group activities and days out, and making friends.

We are located in St. Helens town centre, at 34 Hall Street; opposite the bus station, and a 2 minute walk from St. Helens central train station.

We welcome all Autistic and Asperger adults living in St. Helens and the surrounding areas.


5th June 2018
On the 30th June, we are being featured (and taking part) as one of the local community groups, in the Citizen's Parade, celebrating St. Helens' 150th anniversary! 
This Friday (8th June), our group will be holding an arts and crafts day. This is open to our members and their carers/ parents, where we will be making all different types of things to sell at the parade, in order to raise funds for the Society. 
We will be meeting at the hub at 10am, and will be walking over to 14 Church Street for 10:30am. If you would like to just meet us at 14 Church Street, you are more than welcome to!
Refreshments will be provided.
If anyone has any questions about the arts and crafts day on Friday, just pop us a message and we'll get back to you!
For more info on the parade, visit
The parade starts at 10:30am at the Town Hall.
