SAIL AUTISM | Supporting Autism In Lanarkshire | Hamilton, UK
Community Organisation (Disability)
Our mission is to end isolation and increase understanding for all people affected by autism.
- We believe autism is a valued and unique part of a person’s identity.
- We believe everyone should have same opportunities.
- We believe in creating support and social opportunities with environments where people
affected by autism can flourish.
We will work to ensure everyone with autism is recognised, understood and accepted for
who they are.
Supporting Autism In Lanarkshire (sail autism) is a new local charity founded in August 2016 to support individuals and families affected by autism. We are also keen to support professionals working in the autism field.
With over 15 years of experience, our trustees have assisted hundreds of families with practical advice, signposting and events for everyone to take part in.
sail autism has been set up to expand upon our previous successes, aiming to ensure everyone is included.
We aim to raise understanding of autism by promoting the condition to the general public through literature and events.
We aim to work in partnership with other charities and statutory bodies to provide services and effect change in policies and processes to make life easier for individuals with autism, their families and carers.
