Rugby Autism Network Support is available for parents, carers, and people on the Autistic spectrum. Support is available in various forms from adult support meetings, social breakfasts, and workshops.
Adult Support Meeting
Our adults’ support meetings are an informal event with a chance to meet other Autistic people from the local area. You may bring a friend or relative. You are welcome to join us if you have a diagnosis, are self-diagnosed, or are considering a diagnosis of Autism or a related condition, such as ADHD.
Further details and dates are available on the RAN events page.
Rugby Autism Network Breakfasts
Our informal breakfast is a chance to meet other parents and carers to have a chat. All are welcome, even if a diagnosis has not been made.
They are normally held at the Bacco Lounge in Rugby, further details and dates are on the events page.

The Curly Hair Project
The Curly Hair Project offers workshops, Autism learning days and webinars. It was set up by Alis Rowe, who has Autism that was undiagnosed until she was an adult. All the events are based on real-life experiences.

The Behaviour Circle
The Behaviour Circle Workshops are facilitated by Jane Plimmer, a Learning Disability Nurse who has recently left CAMHS NHS after 24 years to work independently. The framework encourages those who care for an individual with a ‘behaviour of concern’ to consider why behaviours are useful and therefore repeated.
