Advocates for Autism


Advocates for Autism (AFA) is a local registered charity founded by a group of parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and based in County Wexford.


We aim to make a difference in the lives of local children by promoting an awareness and understanding of autism.

When & Where?

We meet the last Thursday of every month at 9 p.m. in the Loch Garman Arms Hotel in Gorey. Everybody is welcome.

AFA Charity of the Year

An amazing night for Advocates for Autism, winner in the Charity of the Year category of the @goreyawards !

A very proud moment for a wonderful group of parents who tirelessly advocate for their children and have created a valuable resource in the Gorey community.

On behalf of all our children and families we would like to thank Gorey Awards for an amazing night with a huge effort from all your team where everyone was so friendly and welcoming. It was our first year, what an honour and then to win, made all our hard work so worth it! We really appreciate everyone who was involved and thanks for having us!
We would also like to thank Cllr Andrew Bolger for all his hard work helping families this year. We all really appreciate everything you do and can never thank you enough!
The group is growing and are very welcoming to new members!
