Dear Partners and Friends
This is just a short update to announce that as of 22nd January 2019 Autism Take 5 will be running a Support Group in Daisy Park Community Centre on the 3rd Tuesday of each month 7pm-9pm in an effort to reach folks who are working during the day. We shall still meet other Tuesdays 10:30-12:30 excluding the 3rd Tues of each month.
Please will you make a note of the changes when referring new members.
We really appreciate your support as we continue to grow.

Vishing frauds against the older people are on the rise
Vishing involves phone calls from people pretending to be from a reputable company in order to encourage people to reveal personal information such as banking or credit card details.
Recent examples include:
- A woman who was conned into transferring £36,000 (four lots of £9,000)
- A man who lost his entire life savings by fraudsters pretending to be from the Royal Bank of Scotland.
