Autism Bedfordshire - Loads Of Autistic Fun (L.O.A.F)

L.O.A.F. is a Saturday morning activity group which the whole family can attend.  It runs fortnightly during term time from 10am to 1pm and provides an inclusive environment where all children up to age 12 (those with A.S.C. and their siblings) and their parents/carers are welcome and supported by trained staff and volunteers.

L.O.A.F. provides a place where autistic children and their families can feel comfortable, accepted and valued. It is a calm, supportive environment that enables the children to feel safe, join in and not be judged if they don’t.

The cost is £10 per family payable at the door. After the first visit, families will need to become members of Autism Bedfordshire to be able to attend further L.O.A.F. session

Please note that there are currently waiting lists for all LOAF groups. If you would like to be added to the waiting list please call the Autism Bedfordshire Office on 01234 214871. We will then contact you as soon as a place becomes available to invite you to the next session.
