We are always keen to hear what you'd like to do in the sessions so please get in touch with your ideas.

We currently meet on campus. If you’d like to join sessions or be added to the mailing list, please get in touch by emailing: or request to join our dedicated Microsoft Teams area.

"Stratus is really fun. It increased my confidence and ability to talk to people."

Stratus stories

Stratus Stories is a continuous writing project which welcomes contributions from students of fiction or non-fiction pieces. We hope to publish these for Autism Awareness events. You are welcome to submit under your name or anonymously. Please send your contributions or questions on further information to us at

"I am looking forward to have my voice heard at the Autism Awareness Event."

Quiet Café

We run a quiet café and dedicated drop in for York St John students every Tuesday during term time between 12:00pm and 1:00pm.

It’s a nice opportunity to socialise and meet other students in a quieter environment and get signposted to different support options.

Quiet Cafe is currently running remotely using Microsoft Teams. If you would like to join please email
