WSUN now supports the Wiltshire Autism Forum.
At the forum, we listen to your views, everyone will have the opportunity to say anything they want to about their experiences of living with autism in Wiltshire and these views are then passed on directly to Wiltshire Council and the NHS. This helps shape the support and services available to people on the autistic spectrum.
We meet on a regular basis, approximately every quarter. If you would like to attend, please email me on: email@example.com or give us a ring on 01380 871800.

Calne Memory Club
The Calne Memory Group held its first meeting on 13th February 2014 at Marden House. The first meeting got off to a great start with five people who either have a memory loss or care for someone with memory loss turning up to find out what the club was all about. Group organisers, Jan Bird, Gill Kosmyryk and Olga Tuffery were well prepared with archive material from Calne Heritage Centre, tea coffee and cakes and a selection of raffle prizes. WSUN staff attended the meeting to support the group. Calne Memory Group will meet fortnightly at Marden House on a Thursday from 10.00 – 12.00. If you live in Calne or the surrounding area, have a memory loss or care for someone with memory loss then you would be more than welcome to come along to a session, enjoy conversation and become involved in the events that will take place.
