Key Club is a FREE creative arts and social club for young people on the autism spectrum.  The members meet once a month at The Lyric, Hammersmith on a Saturday from September to June.  They participate in a creative workshop and share refreshments and social time.

“If there was no Key Club I don't think I'd be the same person I am today. I don't know what would have happened to get me out of the house and interacting with people, especially people my own age.”

It was beautiful, fun and enlivening. I was so touched by the effort and love that the organisers/founders of this event and the music students put into this performance.” DAUGHTER OF A PARTICIPANT
