Find out what’s out there for people with learning disabilities and autism

Come along to the biggest free event in the city for people with learning disabilities or autism. ‘What’s Out There?’ is on Thursday 18 July from 10am to 3pm at BHASVIC.

'What’s Out There' is a free event showcasing the information, support, services, activities and opportunities available for people with learning disabilities and autism to get involved with in the city. The event is open to anyone with learning disabilities and/or autism, as well as family, carers, and anyone else interested in finding out more.

Service providers from across the city will be available to talk to on the day and there will be a range of fun activities to try out too. This year there will also be the opportunity to find out more about education and employment options for young people.

After a successful event last year, we're hosting a bigger and better event

More than 160 people with learning disabilities and/or autism turned up last year, along with 150 carers.

Advice and information was available from 45 organisations including Albion in the Community, Brighton & Hove Buses, Carousel, Grace Eyre, Gig Buddies, Mencap, Switchboard, Team Domenica, the council and the NHS. They also got to try out fun activities including cricket, dance, table tennis and Capoeria. 

Have a look at last year's event.
