Bolton Adult Autism Support

Bolton Adult Autism Support (BAAS) is an award winning grassroots charity based in Bolton supporting autistic adults and their families.

Our Vision: A society that accepts, involves and understands autistic people. Where all autistic adults and their carers feel they belong.

We run regular group social events and a Befriending Service, matching our adult autistic members with a Volunteer Befriender.

Information for volunteers

BAAS Befriending aims to put the Befriendee in the centre of the service. We spend time getting to know the Befriendee, find out their likes and dislikes, where they want to go, what they want to be, and then we match you with a trained and DBS checked volunteer and hopefully, a friendship will be created!

It sounds easy, and we know it isn’t always just as easy as that! This is why we have a dedicated Volunteer Co-ordinator who will support both the Volunteer Befriender and Befriendee during every step of the process.
