Just a heads up to let folk know that the popular local autism support group ‘Supporting the Rainbow’ is meeting today (Tuesday 8th October 2019) – and there have been some changes as now the group is inaugurated as a charity in its own right.
Today and on every second Tuesday from now on they will be meeting at lunchtime from 1:30-2:30pm in the Community Centre (The old Annex, or Central Boys School), Brownhills, just off the Miner Island.
The group is open to parents and carers for those with autism, and aims to offer a welcoming, helpful and supportive network to those coping with the condition.
Supporting the Rainbow 🌈 is now an official charity affiliated with Rethink Mental Health!
After some discussions we have made some changes to our group meetings and venue: from October 8th 2019 we will be having our group meetings at Brownhills Community Centre
We have checked the venue and we have a beautiful room on the ground floor, so it makes it easier for people with pushchairs and people with disabilities to manage.
Our times will still be 1:30-2:30pm but instead of meeting every week, we will be fortnightly starting today, Tuesday 8th October 2019.
We are really looking forward to this new change and our lovely group can progress and move onward: we can look to having workshops and so much more.
The fortnightly meetings make it easier for some people who can’t come every week, and we will be having a raffle and tea and biscuits so please do come along to a warm friendly atmosphere!

The group has been running for a good while now and is still growing in popularity – so why not pop along to see what it’s all about?
