SOCIAL OPPORTUNITIES (SOCOPS)

In 2005 a group of parents who all had children on the Autistic Spectrum decided to set up a social skills youth club for their own children and others in the community. Due to their Autism it was felt that the children were missing out on mainstream clubs and needed a group to call their own. A committee was formed to set up and oversee the running of the group and in April 2005 SOCOPS was launched. It was initially run once every two weeks at a local church hall in Exeter with just six families. SOCOPS registered as a charity in 2009, it currently runs two weekly youth groups operating within Exeter , works with up to 30 families and  is now officially the Lord Mayor of Exeter's Charity of the year.
