  • Autism advisory panel participants wanted

    Created: 25/07/2019

    The Scottish Government, in partnership with Inspiring Scotland, are delighted to announce that following the launch of the Improving Understanding of Autism in Scotland fund, they are seeking applications to regional Advisory Forums. These forums will take place in four locations across Scotland: Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Aberdeen.

    The Improving Understanding of Autism in Scotland fund aims to address the lack of understanding across Scottish society about the needs of autistic people and the challenges that they face, but also about their strengths and assets as well as their needs and rights.

    We are continuing to work hard to ensure the programme is guided by autistic people, whose voice must be at the centre of all that we do. We aim to develop campaign messages that reflect the diversity of the community.

    The Advisory Forums will be a crucial part of this. they want to ask the opinions of and seek input from the autistic community as this new programme develops. These forums will allow feedback to be gathered from autistic people and others who feel they have a contribution to make to the programme.
