No Support in the North East Poor books on the subject
The people on this this site have tried their best, I was diagnosed with ASD in August of 2018. But after looking into this there is still not a suitable support group. Nothing Worse still the libraries in Northumberland and Newcastle City have very poor books on this subject. The North East is behind other areas in this field including LGBTQ. I may think in the future of going back to Manchester and the south to areas like Watford. This is because the services are getting worse and expensive overall. The job prospects as I am now unemployed are appalling and will never change. Most employers have so many people that the chance of gaining a new job is slim. The Autistic Society really has been useless in that they never answer the question or they expect me to go to Belford which is 35 miles away in the middle of no where. They should have something in South East Northumberland or Newcastle City. I get emails for events which are in Durham or that Belford. I think i will remove my details as it is i suspect fundraising. When I make enquiries the answer is the same groups GMT which is an appalling group and some concerns and Gasbags which I am a member already. The Answer there is nothing. So I think someone should look into setting a support group for Autistic people
