Turning Point Scotland’s first autism specific services opened in 1999, when people were being resettled into the community from long stay institutions.
Now we have a range of supported living and day support services across Scotland providing anything from a few hours a day through to 24/7 support. Forty people age 16 upwards benefit from individualised support in their own homes or tenancies and in community settings.
Working in partnership is the key to our approach in making sure people with autism get the best support to meet their own individual needs.
We work with housing providers, for example, to make sure the environment is appropriate; schools and colleges to find out the best option for young people leaving school; health and social work to make sure people receive the best support possible and of course with the people themselves and their families or carers.
