People First Bridgend has a group called
Bridgend Spectrum Social Support Group, or BSSG.
This is a self-advocacy and peer-support group for people on the autism spectrum.
The BSSG was set up for people with autism to meet others like them to talk about how to overcome difficulties.
This is called peer-support.
The BSSG makes people more confident and comfortable to be around other people.
It helps people develop social skills.
The BSSG runs social nights in the community so that people can try what they learn.
