The Scottish Government are continuing their commitment to develop and enhance services for people with autism and are now seeking applications for innovation and development funding which will be available for 2015-16.
The Scottish Strategy for Autism provides a framework to build on improvements to autism services in Scotland, including support to families to access services such as social care, education, housing and employment. Since 2011 the Scottish Government has committed to an Autism Development Fund and has funded a number of statutory organisations and local and national third sector organisations for a variety of local and national projects that support and improve the outcomes for people with autism.
