Hi everyone, i’m 23 and just currently moved to Haringey. I have no friends in the area and this community was suggested to me by a family friend. I have autism and would like to socialise with open-minded people!

    Hi @pinkandbubbly - welcome to this friendly & supportive community. It's great that a family friend suggested you join us all. :) We have a lot of members with autism, so you'll be in good company. Please have a look around the forum & join in with any discussions of interest. You may also like our virtual 'Coffee lounge' to meet other members, & perhaps try some of the word games we play there.

    How are you finding Haringey so far? Hopefully you will meet people in the area soon, but in the meantime it's good that you were recommended this community. Have you had a chance to take a look around the site?
