BAAGS offers support, advice, advocacy, information and friendship to persons with Asperger syndrome, autism, their parents, relatives, partners, friends, work colleagues/friends, and anyone with an interest in learning more about Asperger syndrome, autism and related behaviours. We are a Group run by volunteer parents and people who work with autistic children. BAAGS hope to make people aware of the condition and the effects it has on everyone…the teachers, the families, the neighbours…Everyone. It is important for persons with autistic behaviours to be allowed the opportunity to have the correct care and attention individually planned around them.

► The aims of our Group are to;
- Offer support, encouragement and hope.
- Raise awareness of the behaviours of autism.
- Raise awareness of the stress suffered by lack of knowledge.
►Members, and non-members, are encouraged to talk about their experiences, to share their views, their concerns, their angers and frustrations. It often comes as a surprise to learn that they aren’t alone, that they will survive, and that their feelings of loneliness and despair have been, and are still being, experienced by others.

►We need people to accept that Asperger syndrome and autism exist, that people with the condition live amongst us, are related to us, and they and their families need support, they deserve support and they deserve to enjoy their lives. Anything anyone can do to help them should be done.
