Supported Employment Services
In Scotland there are a wide range of services that provide support to autistic people to develop skills for work, find jobs and provide support in the workplace. There are also agencies that can provide autism awareness training for employers and colleagues.
Supported employment services are often provided by Local Authorities.
It is useful to know what services there are in your area, as they can provide direct advice and support to you and any autistic employees you have in your organisation. Below you can find some links to services that operate nationally across Scotland. For more information on what is available in your local area please contact us.
To learn more about supported employment and related policy, structures and initiatives in Scotland you can read this report from 2013 which outlines these.
