Peer Support Groups

Peer Support Groups

S4Nd’s peer support groups are run by and for neurodiverse people. The groups offer members mutual support, guidance and the sharing of information. 

All S4Nd peer support groups are open to anyone who identifies as neurodiverse. Groups are held monthly on Sundays using Zoom and take place from 2.30-4pm. They follow the same principles as the Moots

  • Thinking About Neurodiversity is for anyone considering they might be autistic, ADHD or otherwise neurodiverse. The group discusses practical support and information on topics ranging from approaching a GP seeking diagnosis to rights about diagnostic assessments. 
  • Peer Support Circle is a safe space for neurodiverse people to talk about the challenges of daily life. Members share experiences including problems at work or difficulties accessing health and care services in a supportive and non-judgemental environment. They are an ideal way to find out about things like Personal Independence Payments, Blue Badges, direct payments, housing etc.
  • Understanding Neurodiversity is for people newly identifying as neurodiverse or who want to know more. The group is an opportunity to find out what being neurodiverse means and to develop self-knowledge and understanding. 

Thinking About Neurodiversity meets on the first Sunday of the month, Peer Support Circle on the second and Understanding Neurodiversity on the third.

There’s more information about S4Nd moots and how to join them in the members’ area. To access the S4Nd members’ area just log in, If you’re not already a member join S4Nd, membership is free.

Clothes make the man – the changing of a logo

The making of a logo. “Like it or not, things change. And, sometimes, they are completely unexpected. Like when I got the message that we couldn’t carry on using the logo. It had a stock photo of the rainbow infinity symbol and, according to conventional wisdom, that wasn’t something that was acceptable to use in an organisations logo so it had to go.”

Website accessibility

It was always our intention that S4Nd would be “virtual”. For many neurodivergent people, the idea of having to go somewhere can sometimes be a step too far. Being virtual gives people better access – the members area is available to use 24 hours a day. Geography is not a barrier to the virtual world, so it does not matter that we are based in Calderdale. Being virtual means we can reach far more people and create a dedicated, safe space for people to connect through shared interests.

Neurodiverse yoga

Hi, I’m Sally SJ Brown from Bikebuddha Yoga. I’m an academic researcher, writer and editor and yoga teacher based in the north of England.

Since completing my 200-hour yoga teacher training in 2018 my goal has been to bring accessible, inclusive yoga to underserved people and places. That includes inner-city communities, more mature groups, wheelchair users – and neurodiverse people.
