In 2018, Scottish Autism (SA) will mark 50 years since its founding. Established in 1968 by a group of parents, we are now the largest provider of autism-specific services in Scotland and a leading authority and advocate for good autism practice.
SA describe themselves as an organisation dedicated to enriching the lives of people with autism.
SA exist to help those diagnosed with autism to lead full and enriched lives and become valuable members of the community they live in.
SA also seek to share their knowledge and expertise with parents, carers and other professionals in order to support the development of skills and strategies needed to provide the best care and support for people with autism.
With a head office in Alloa and over 900 staff working across Scotland, SA offer a large range of services for people with autism including education, day and vocational opportunities, supported living, outreach, respite and specialist transition support.
SA are committed to providing the best possible services for people with autism. Our organisational quality improvement is driven by the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) which enables us to conduct regular comprehensive reviews of our activities and to identify areas for improvement. Using the EFQM excellence model, we were delighted to achieve the Recognised for Excellence 4 Star Award in June 2017. We are also featured on the EFQM Global Index which recognises the world’s best performing organisations on their journey to sustainable excellence.
