Get Together was developed out of a desire to help those less fortunate than ourselves. Since its inception, we have worked hard to provide support where it's most needed.
Get Together was started in 2010 by Claire
Vyse, Kelly Mills and their Husbands Lee and Paul.
As two mums with Autistic children whose Husbands worked long hours we found it difficult to socialise as a family and had both been through plenty of ups and downs alone. We wanted to meet others in the same situation but there was nothing out there that catered for the whole family so we decided to begin our own group in a safe environment for our children and other families to Come and Share. We started Get Together - Come & Share, held the second Wednesday of every month at Union Place Baptist Church, Oban Road, Longford, Coventry.
We are a family group for those with a diagnosis or related to someone with a diagnosis of Autism/Aspergers. Everyone from Mums, Dads, Brothers, Sisters and Grandparents to Aunts and Uncles can come along to chat about experiences, share information and find support.
The group is a safe environment where nobody judges behaviour, because we all have similar experiences. there is plenty of entertainment for the children such as toys, books and computer games.
Since Get Together - Come & Share started we have experienced a high volume of interest with people from all over Coventry and Warwickshire attending or enquiring about the group. Get Together has become more than a monthly support session we have added extra activities throughout the month and now have a growing local support network through social media.
The Get Together team are continuously trying to raise funds to provide more services for our members.
Our aim is to bring families together and prevent isolation for everyone affected by Autism/Aspergers.
Everyone is welcome.
The Get Together team.
