Loads Of Autistic Fun (L.O.A.F) - Autism Bedfordshire

Loads of Autistic Fun (or L.O.A.F. for short) is a Saturday morning activity group which the whole family can attend.  It runs fortnightly during term time from 10am to 1pm and provides an inclusive environment where all children up to age 12 (those with autism and their siblings) and their parents/carers are welcome and supported by trained staff and volunteers.

LOAF provides a place where autistic children and their families can feel comfortable, accepted and valued. It is a calm, supportive environment that enables the children to feel safe, join in and not be judged if they don’t. The first session would be free but the usual cost is £10 per family. After the first visit, families will need to become members of Autism Bedfordshire to be able to attend further LOAF sessions.

Currently we run LOAF at 4 venues throughout the county:

  1. Bedford - Wootton Lower School, Harris Way, Wootton, Beds, MK43 9BX
  2. Biggleswade - Ivel Valley Special School, Hitchmead Road, Biggleswade, SG18 0NL
  3. Leighton Buzzard - The Rushmere Park Academy, East Street, Leighton Buzzard  LU7 1EW
  4. Luton - Pastures Way Nursery School, Pastures Way, Luton, LU4 0PE
