Autism Initiatives started in the 1970’s with a school. Now we support autistic people of all ages and all complexities. We run One Stop Shops, supported living services, social enterprises, community resource centres, educational support and so much more. Our work positively changes lives. No two autistic people are the same and neither are any of our personal plans. We work with each individual and their family to understand what they need, how they work best, and how we can support each person to achieve their own goals.
Our Number 6 One Stop Shop started in 2005 in Edinburgh for people with Aspergers. It was (and still is) an innovative way to provide support, advice and social opportunities to autistic people. The award winning service quickly grew and we now support over 2,700 autistic people across three Scottish One Stop Shops.
From their bases and through community outreach services our One Stop Shops offer support and services to autistic people throughout Edinburgh, Lothians, Borders, Highland and Perth & Kinross.
