Please note due to the current Coronavirus crisis across the UK all of the Autonomy meetings are cancelled at present.

Please do not attend any of the meetings - in addition to this the National Autistic Society have also cancelled their events too and the Goldwing Bike Parade has been cancelled.

If you need to contact people at the moment please do this via telephone or social media rather than face to face.

Wishing everyone all the best and stay safe out there.

PLEASE NOTE - Autonomy Plus side of Shropshire Autonomy is still open and able to take requests as long as they can be acted upon virtually via the internet or a phone call.



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.


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.

Hi all. From a recent press conference with Prime Minister Boris Johnson today. 'everyone in the UK is now being advised to avoid "non-essential" contact with others and "unnecessary" travel. Also some of our members also have health issues so are vulnerable.

People are also being asked to avoid pubs, clubs, theatres and social venues.

As such we will need to cancel our next social events which are Autonomy for Women on Wednesday and also The Hole in the Wall social a week on Tuesday and probably the next Telford social as well. Updates will be via Facebook.

Members can still keep in touch with each other by phone, text and video call, so we will just have to be social through technology but then we already are pretty good at it already!
