Young Adults Club

The Young Adults Club is a service previously managed by the Portsmouth Autism Support Network and is provided free of charge.

We host a monthly meet- up at The Baffins pub on the last Wednesday of every month. We have a cordoned-off area of the pub for our service users, with a nearby table / area where carers and parents are able to join in or meet up themselves. There is also food for sale for those that wish. (everyone must pay for their own food and drinks)

This group provides a more 'adult' yet safe environment for our members up to about 25 years of age. We suggest that this event is for teenagers and older; under 18s must bring authorisation and emergency contact details from a named parent or carer.

There is a pool table and wi-fi available, and the Young Adults can bring games if they want to play them - but the aim of the meet-up is to bring people together and socialise, and develop friendships amongst peers.

We also run a monthly bowling activity for the Young Adults Club for which there is a charge.
