        Dungeons & Dragons

        Women's & Non-Binary Term 3 Pilot Group
        Expression of Interest


        If you are a woman (cis and trans) or non-binary person aged 18 or older and you're interested in joining a pilot Dungeons & Dragons group in Term 3, we want to hear from you!


        AV's Dungeons & Dragons program is one of AV's most popular programs, and the AV team are looking for ways to make the program more inclusive for people of all genders. We are planning to run a pilot D&D group for women (cis and trans) and non-binary folk in Term 3 of 2022. The Dungeon Master for this group will also be a woman, and we would like to know if there is enough interest in our community for this group to go ahead.


        Group details

        • Open to women (cis and trans) and non-binary individuals only
        • Players must be aged 18 or older
        • All levels of D&D skill are welcome, including beginners and those who haven't played D&D before. The group level will default to beginner or the least experienced in the group.
        • The session day and time is yet to be determined and will depend on player and DM availability. Sessions will be weekly in Term 3
        • The price will be similar to current AV D&D programs.
        • Details will be available in early June.
        • The group must have at least four players to run, and the maximum group size is six.
        • This Expression of Interest is open to members and non-members, but you will need to be a current AV member to register for the group itself when registrations open.


        If you are interested in being contacted about this group for Term 3, please click "Register" to go to the registration form and add your name to the expression of interest list.


        Who can I contact if I have questions?

        Many of the questions we receive about our D&D program are similar, so we have put together an AV D&D FAQ document to help players and families to find answers quickly.


        For more information

        If you have further questions or feedback about this activity, please contact our AV admin team.

        • Call 0480 385 710, or email us.

Using Discord, they can join servers they have been invited to, create private servers with their friends, or message each other individually or in group chats. We suggest reading the Parents' Guide to Discord Blog before joining for the first time.


              Is it safe for our teens to use?

              Yes. Aspergers Victoria have created a dedicated, secure server for our Teens group. Only registered participants can access the AV Teens Discord server, and the link changes monthly for security. Our moderators have the list of registered teens and will only allow them to be online during the meeting.

                Partners Group: In-Person Meeting


                About our Partners Group

                Join our Partners Peer Support Group to meet other adults who are or who have been in a relationship with someone who has Aspergers, is autistic, or has a similar neurodivergent profile. Sharing experiences within the safe environment of our peer support meetings can be a lifeline, and sharing with people who have similar lived experience is validating and often educational. Your partner may be self-diagnosed or have a formal diagnosis, and you may share a household or live separately. We are an inclusive group and welcome partners of all genders and relationship types.


                This session is facilitated by our Partners Group Leaders. All AV volunteer group leaders share the lived experience of their group participants and welcome new attendees.
