Who We Are
United Pride Friends is a group service for members of the LGBTQ+ community with Autism and Learning difficulties. The primary purpose of our group is giving members a safe place to meet new people and make friends.
What We Do
Our aim is to build the confidence of our members through workshops and social events, as well as providing educational sessions where we will discuss topics that affect this community, such as dealing with homophobia, discrimination and coming out to friends and family.

Our aim is to build the confidence of our members through workshops and social events
Our goal as people with Autism & Learning difficulties is to be recognised by society, understanding our needs but also equally see us in the same light.
Showing the world that our community can have and hold down friendships & relationships without discriminative and stereotypical views.
