Step Into Social is a social group for young adults 18-30 on the autism spectrum in Fremantle, Western Australia.
Now running 3 groups fortnightly on a Saturday, Step Into Social provides a space in Fremantle for individuals to hang out, to have fun, and to meet people with similar interests.
Using a strengths-based approach, the overall aim is to engage and motivate, connect, and to build feelings of self-worth.
Step Into Social is run with the active involvement of group members, with Autism West staff facilitating activities the group members agree on. These groups are great places to develop friendships while enjoying various activities, meals and excursions, and where possible, we support the delivery of special projects such as coding, art and film-making.
In 2017, the Step Into Social group launched a documentary exploring what engaged them as young adults living in Perth. Watch this space for the launch of our Step Into Social documentary in 2017!
