VIC: LGBTQIA+ Events for Autistic Community

Different Journeys started when two mums (Mel and Merrin) came together to do something about the loneliness and isolation they and their Autistic children were experiencing. In February 2016 the first Autistic Teen Peer Support Social Group event was held at Club Kilsyth. It was an immediate success due to the overwhelming need from the then local community in the outer Eastern suburbs.

Different Journeys has continued to grow and evolve to meet the needs of our Autistic community from that day on. Our talented pool of volunteers, peer mentors, Board members, partners and professional supporters has also grown. We are proud of our collective achievements and of the many lives that have been positively changed forever because of Different Journeys. 

Different Journeys peer support social events are for both Autistic teens, Autistic adults, the carer(s) and their families. It allows individuals to build transferable skill sets such as communication skills, social skills, ability to maintain more meaningful relationships and skills to access the community.
