The Navigator Programme was devised as a result of listening to the issues and challenges faced by many individuals. A Navigator is a hybrid of mentor, befriend-er and is matched with an autistic adult. The aim is to steer and support individuals towards a safe and positive life; building on strengths and navigating a path towards identified goals.
Positive Pals is a safe and supportive space for autistic adults to meet, socialise and share their experiences. Positive Pals operates in groups across Cumbria. We currently have groups in Penrith, Carlisle, Workington, Kendal and Barrow.
Our specially designed Discovery Panels are peer-led courses whereby individuals are given the opportunity to learn about their autism and to discuss and share coping strategies.
Training is an important part of Triple A’s offerings. We provide a tailor-made courses for individuals, groups and professionals. Autistic co-facilitators are involved in all our training offering authenticity and insight to the experience.

“I have been the only person consistently there for my son. It is just exhausting to feel alone. Thank you for being there – makes all the difference.”
“I cannot tell you what a relief this has been to me after feeling alone for so long. Just thinking there is someone there, they can help, they know what they’re doing, they understand; it’s just incredible.”
“Very informative. Changed my views on what autism means and this session has given me a really good insight into what an individual with autism feels and goes through and should I come across someone with autism, how I can communicate with them.”
“Really enjoyed the training. Extremely knowledgeable trainers – approachable and easy to ask questions – especially the co-facilitator who said he would not get offended by any questions and made us feel at ease. Made sure we could relate to it at our jobs, which was very useful. Love the saying, “Nothing about us without us”. Will be using the and spreading the word.”
