Our Clubs

Gotta catch ’em all! Pokemon fans having a fantastic time at one of our clubs. Just one of the special interests on which our clubs are based.

Welcome to The Autism Group, a Maidenhead based charity committed to supporting and enhancing the lives of young people on the spectrum, their parents and carers

What we do

We offer a warm, well informed response to the needs of young people on the autistic spectrum, their parents, carers and wider community through our special interest clubs, workshops and parent support services .


We have a range of clubs for children and young people on the spectrum. Held on Saturdays in central Maidenhead, for ages 9 to 25 based on various special interests and an on-line group for adults up to the age of 30.


Book in to one of our free TAG talks which are aimed at giving parents a little insight into how autism might affect their young person – and some simple strategies to help support their needs.

Parent Support

Our informal coffee and chat sessions across East Berkshire are led by autism trained team members who also have young people of their own who are on the spectrum. Pre booking essential. For one to one support, check out our TAG@Home service.
