At Scottish Autism, we focus on supporting individuals with autism through the whole life journey and enabling them to have fulfilling life experiences.
We have recently undertaken a review of our existing service provision at Clannalba Respite and Transitional Assessment Service in Biggar. We carried out this review as the demand for respite has been reducing over recent years with fewer individuals using the service. Following the review, regretfully Scottish Autism has made the difficult decision to no longer provide respite at Clannalba from the 1st April 2018. This means that we are not accepting referrals to this service.
Whilst we will no longer be providing respite support at Clannalba, the Main House will be 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. In addition, respite will be available at our new service Founders House in Alloa which will be opening in Spring 2018. This is a one bedroomed, self-contained flat offering 24hr support to adults.
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.
