Parent and Carer Support Group

To all customers, we regret to announce that Makers will close as of 17th March 2020 in light of the most recent UK and Scottish Government’s official guidance around COVID-19. The health, safety and wellbeing of our staff and individuals we support is our priority. Makers will remain closed until further notice and will re-open as soon as possible, following government recommendations.

With this in mind, our Parent and Carer Support Groups will be taking a break for the foreseeable future. If you wish to speak with our Autism Support Team, please contact advice@scottishautism.org or visit our website.

Many thanks, Scottish Autism

Service User Activity Programme

Rather than being a passive recipient of services, citizens can become actively involved in selecting and shaping the support they receive.

The vision for day opportunities for autistic people and individuals with learning disabilities was set out in the Scottish Government’s 2013 strategy ‘The Keys to Life’. This proposes a move towards day opportunities which:

  • Provide people with an environment in which they can directly experience the workplace and learn how to cope and thrive in this setting
  • Design programmes for skills development and progression
  • Use day opportunities as a base for participation in the wider community

These statements have become integral to our vision for Makers.
