Introducing Hannah Thompson - one of our volunteers who has taken on facilitation of some of our groups.
I discovered AutAngel in April 2016. Once I had plucked up the courage to make contact I enjoyed attending groups and a year later did the Exploring Being Autistic Course.
It has been a brilliant way to meet people and friendships have built up over time. I enjoy supporting and welcoming people, so this year I have been facilitating groups, such as the Women’s Peer Support and Games sessions.
Luckily I have a strong sense of adventure, love of exploring and learning new skills. I have had a go at all sorts: kayaking, clarinet, mountain biking, singing, sign language, hiking, archery, first aid and ju jitsu.
Recently I have been dabbling with calligraphy, Nia fitness, theatre, climbing/bouldering and possibly having a go at caving in the near future. I am also volunteering for a cooking club helping young adults with disabilities, while I continue my search for paid work.
I look forward to catching up with everyone in the New Year and enjoying lots more adventures with you all!
