Makers is a new Scottish Autism community hub delivering day and vocational opportunities for autistic people aged 16 + and individuals with learning disabilities who would otherwise lack opportunities to experience a supported working environment. The project will house a community cafe, shop and gallery, and a kitchen garden. We will also host a rolling programme of activities and learning opportunities for the people that access this community space.
Scottish Autism is an organisation dedicated to enabling autistic people to lead happy, healthy and fulfilling lives. We provide a wide range of flexible and innovative support services for children and adults across Scotland, each with a focus on improving quality of life. Central to this is recognising that each person has a unique set of needs. We create personalised support plans which are based on an individual’s own strengths and motivations and on achieving outcomes which are meaningful to them.
