Socialise, share information and get to know one another
Meet at a moot
S4Nd moots are regular group catch-ups for neurodiverse people to socialise, share information and get to know one another. The moots are a way to connect with like-minded individuals in a non-judgemental, welcoming way. It is a term to describe social events where people get together to socialise and make new friends.
Did you know?
The word ‘moot’ in Anglo-Saxon times referred to village meetings where decisions were made about how to divide their crops and deal with local issues. A meeting would be called a ‘moot hall’ and often held in an assembly building, equivalent to today’s town hall. A ‘moot point’ would be an item for discussion at one of these meetings. Today, the term ‘moot’ is still commonly used within the Pagan community.
Lord of the Rings readers may recall the ‘Entmoot’, a meeting of the Ents to discuss their plans to attack Saruman’s fortress at Isengard.
Currently, S4Nd moots are online using Zoom. They run several times a week and contain information and a good amount of sharing and chatting between the group. It’s designed to be as accessible and flexible as possible, you can be anonymous, arrive and leave at any point and don’t have to join in if you don’t want to. Cameras and mics can be left off and you can use the chat function instead of speaking.
Moots offer an opportunity to take part in informative discussions but you can also spend time getting to know people, have a great conversation, make new friends and most importantly, have fun.
