We offer a range of activities and support for children, siblings and their parents. Our activities suit all ages, interests and abilities and we take care to minimise factors that might cause anxiety, i.e. noise, crowds and queues.
In addition to our activities, we have a facebook support group, giving members the opportunity to exchange views, share ideas and ask advice in a private and non-judgemental platform.

We have a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities tailored for children and young adults on the Autistic Spectrum. Our members find it difficult to attend local activities. This can be because of the noise, queues, crowds and quite often struggle to negotiate social situations. FASS sole hires activities to allow children to be themselves in an environment they are their families find comfortable.
Indoor Soft Play Monkey Bizness, Gosport
At Monkey Bizness you can sit back and relax whilst the kids run off their energy with two fun hours of running about, climbing and sliding at Monkey Bizness.
Access to two play zones for children of all heights and ages, including a quiet room for the those difficult times.
Swimming Fareham Leisure Centre with Inflatables
If you struggle to go swimming with your family, either because it is too busy, too stressful or too noisy then this is perfect for you.
Enjoy 1-hour exclusive swimming at Fareham Leisure Centre. We have hired the large pool and this will include the inflatables and floats.
Game Over Retro Games Cafe, Portsmouth
In an awesome basement setting, you can book in for a 2-hour session just with our FASS friends, and game to your heart's content.
They have every single game and console that you can imagine, from the Vectrex to the Game Cube, from Playstation 1 to Pong on the Binatone TV Master IV.
Chocolate Workshop The Crafty Chocolatier, Waterlooville
The Crafty Chocolatier has a Chocolate Snug, situated in her garden in Waterlooville. Come and join us in her happy place where creations come to life.
All tickets are for children and this includes siblings. The shed is small so we only stick to 8 children per session.
Cooking with Coral Holiday & Weekends, Porchester & Havant
Does your child or young person enjoy cooking and baking but struggle to cope with the pressure of a group setting because there is often too many children, noises and smells resulting in sensory overload? Or maybe they struggle to maintain focus and require support and regular breaks at a pace suited for them?
Hydro Pool and Sensory Room Heath Road, Park Gate, SO31 6PJ
Autistic children gain skills with swimming, balance, and strength during hydrotherapy.
A Sensory Room is a specially designed space aimed to stimulate the senses, promoting de-escalation and/or encouraging engagement.
