Consultancy

We offer a range of bespoke consultancy services that will provide you and your business or organisation, with advice and guidance on how to support autistic people, attract and retain autistic employees, and provide a welcoming and accessible environment for your autistic customers.

We are committed to sustainable societal change that will support autistic people in their local communities. We want to work with businesses to ensure there is an on-going sustainable commitment for inclusion and accessibility for autistic people.

Autism is so individual that whilst some broad principles can be applied, for us, it is really about continuous engagement and learning to ensure adaptations are useful and make a difference to as many autistic people and their families as possible.

Joanna Panese, Practice and Community Development Lead, leads a team of specialist autism advisors who will be on hand to support throughout your consultancy project.

An experienced practitioner and leader, Joanna has over 14 years’ experience in the third sector through direct practice, service development and management roles. At Scottish Autism, Joanna has worked alongside autistic people in supported living and day services, and has managed services that provide vocational and skills development opportunities.

In her current role, Joanna leads on the development of practice both internally and externally providing practice and service development support across Scottish Autism, and partner organisations. Joanna’s key interest lies in creating environments and communities that enable autistic people to flourish and that value their voice.

We are delighted to be working with Scottish Autism at this exciting time for Barclays.  As we double our headcount in Scotland we want to do this in a way that attracts, retains and develops the best talent.  The design of the campus is crucial in this respect.

Scott Stewart, Head of Barclays

 

The advice we received from Scottish Autism was very helpful. We were so pleased to see so many attend our Relaxed Event, and the feedback was so positive, guests really enjoyed themselves and felt it was an enjoyable experience for everyone who attended within their party. We would highly recommend the consultancy service for any other organisations organising autism accessible events.

Following requests from families with autistic children, we were delighted to work with Scottish Autism to make the Festive Forest attractions more welcoming and accessible. We worked alongside Scottish Autism’s advisors to seek advice and support on what adjustments could be made to Beecraigs Festive Forest and they provided autism awareness training to our staff working at the event. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Scottish Autism.

Ewen McMartin, Director at Rowen Events
