At Scottish Autism, we focus on supporting autistic individuals through the whole life journey and enabling them to have fulfilling life experiences.
Respite will be available soon at our new service Founders House in Alloa in Summer/Autumn 2019. This will be a one bedroomed, self-contained flat offering 24hr support to adult and individuals with learning disabilities.
Last year following a review of our service provision at Clannalba Respite and Transitional Assessment Service in Biggar, Scottish Autism made the difficult decision to no longer provide respite at Clannalba. This review was carried out as the demand for respite had been reducing over the years with fewer individuals using the service.
Although we no longer provide respite support at Clannalba, the Main House is being converted to provide residential support to six autistic adults.
We are also looking to develop a small (two person) respite facility for adults in Lanark. Plans for this new service are in the very early stage but we hope to have it operational in April 2019.
We will continue to update this page with information regarding our new respite services. To discuss respite provision further please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or complete our enquiries form.
