Support Autus



At Autus Cumbria we are committed to continuing to provide the best possible service to young people and their families during the developing situation with COVID-19.  In line with government guidance, all of our youth groups are currently CLOSED until further notice. Read more here

We may not have been able to meet in person during coronavirus but that hasn't stopped us

from moving our youth groups online!

"I think this online group is marvellous! My son really looks forward to it. He’s fed up, but the time with the group helps him forget. He loves seeing everyone."

"I’m enjoying seeing the leaders and my friends from youth club, it’s fun and it always makes me feel happy."
