Enfield charity One-to-One is hosting its annual Autism Conference later this month with a range of speakers and classes which are free to attend.

Enfield mayor Suna Hurman will be opening the conference at 1pm on Monday, 25th September, when the theme will be ’empowerment’.

One-to-One’s patron Dean Beadle will then give a keynote speech. Amanda Hind, autism speaker and consultant, will join Ed Shearer and peer support worker Bee Bentall for a Q&A panel discussion on late autism diagnosis at 4.15pm.

Enfield Welfare and Debt Advice service will be speaking on the cost of living and the benefits system. They will also be offering 15-minute one-to-one advice sessions for attendees – book in on arrival to secure your slot.

Attendees can discover what opportunities there are in the local community. Enfield Voluntary Action will offer a talk on getting the best out of volunteering, and will also be available to speak to at their stall. You can also get involved in shaping an adult autism strategy for Enfield by joining a talk at 2.30pm.

Information stalls throughout the day include Enfield National Autistic Society; healthy lifestyle providers Bread ‘n’ Butter; Enfield Voluntary Action; Enfield Council’s welfare and debt support team; Engage Enfield’s Riverside Housing support scheme; Enfield Disability Action and Citizens Advice Bureau.

A collaborative art project workshop will be open all day as a quieter space where people can express themselves. Self-care strategies will be taught at workshops, while you can learn a practical mind-body self-care skill that you can practice at home with no special equipment.

One-to-One will also have teatime cakes from Enfield Women’s Institute and the café will be open as usual.

Autism Conference is taking place on Monday, 25th September from 12pm-7pm at Park Avenue Disability Resource Centre in Bush Hill Park. To book your free ticket:
