Bendigo Events

A warm welcome and hello from the Different Journeys team!

Different Journeys is excited to be working closely with BAAG to ensure that an autism-specific service is offered to all members in Bendigo.

Bendigo Autism Asperger Group BAAG, Initially known as Bendigo Autism Family Support Group was established in 1996 by a small group of parents who came together monthly for a coffee and a chat. Over the years membership grew to over 300 and in addition to the monthly coffee mornings events included Tenpin bowling and Discovery Science Works days, social groups for Autistic teens and adults as well as a yearly conference with a variety of guest presenters. BAAG also donated a large amount of autism resources to the Bendigo Library.

In 2022 Different Journeys and BAAG joined in partnership to continue the amazing work BAAG had established whilst operating events and services under the Different Journeys name. We continue to offer 1:1 peer support for carers to connect in with services and teen autism peer support events will keep running plus many more events to come. We understand that change can be tricky, but rest assured we are here to help create the best community possible. 

To connect in or find support please head on over to our Facebook page at Different Journeys. A list of upcoming events can be located in our events tab. We look forward to hearing from you!
