Basically there's not much in the way of adult support groups in the Liverpool/Wirral area so I resorted to setting my own one up.
I have started up all the social media for it and would really appreciate it if you guys took a look. The more interest I get online, the easier it will be for me to start a monthly meet up alternating between Liverpool and Wirral, look into funding etc. Our mission statement is here: https://www.facebook.com/merseysideautisticadults/posts/2235971603311792
Anyway, here are the social media links:

Just wanted to add my thanks for what your doing, meeting up and just talking to like minded people is such a good way of accepting there is nothing at all wrong with any of us, we see and feel things in a different way not a wrong one.
Good luck and I hope you get a meet going soon.
I am based more Oxfordshire area. Not looked to hard but found a regular meeting held in a pub during the quite times, and tea and coffee plentiful, no pressure to join in and apparently quite a few turn up.
where I am working right now we park beside a “ resource “ centre, most attending are with issues, they do crafts and such things,
I got talking to one who said it was the best thing she does, stating the years of councilling hasn’t helped only caused more issues, she was diagnosed bipolar when young, her son is diagnosed autistic,
I really think she is autistic with a wrong diagnosis, asked her many questions, ticked many boxes,,,I gave her this site and links to Tania marshals site and said said just pop in and read a few accounts from women about your age, it may give you some help understanding who you are. Hope she does.
We are really well-placed to recognise other autistic people who have not had a diagnosis. Funnily enough the only person to actually say that I might be autistic was an autistic service user I worked with a few years ago.
You've did such a lovely thing in sharing information with the woman at the resource centre. It's easy to see how women have ended up with the wrong diagnoses, and so sad too.
