If you or a member of your family is on the autism spectrum and is aged 12+ years, then an e-befriender can provide you with regular online support and social contact. The service is available thoughout the UK. Our volunteer e-befrienders exchange emails with you or another member of your family, chatting about things that interest or concern you and offering a friendly, supportive link with the wider community. We take the time to match you with an e-befriender you have something in common with. The E-Befriending Service is particularly useful when an individual lives somewhere remote and is otherwise unable to access other services.
