Social Groups

CareTrade understands that socialising and making friends can be challenging for autistic people and many face social isolation; with this in mind, we run a programme of social events throughout the year for our students and alumni.

Our student reps are involved in planning and advertising of social events.

Social events are a fantastic way for our young people to practice communication and interaction, promote independence and try new things in a safe environment.

Benefits of socialising:
• Increased mental health
• Increased self- esteem and feeling of belonging
• Increased opportunity to experience new things
• Increased independence and autonomy
