HOPE for Autism Profile
HOPE for Autism was founded by a group of Mums who saw a gap in available services for their children and started a support group in the late 90s. In 2002 they became a registered charity SC 033312.
We provide support and services for children and young people affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families who live in North Lanarkshire. This includes support group meetings for families and activity groups for the children and young people.
HOPE for Autism offers services to over 150 families affected by (ASD) over 6 days a week, including evening groups for the children and young people (C&YP) and services for their carers such as one-to-one and group support, free training, social nights and parents’ group meetings.
As our C&YP often do not have access to mainstream activities within their local community. They are at risk of isolation because they have tried mainstream activities and failed. Sometimes because of behaviour issues they are not even allowed to attend mainstream activities.
HOPE reduces the risk of isolation by providing a safe controlled environment as a first stage in a pathway moving towards integration in mainstream / local community.
The safe, controlled environment we provide allows the children to learn to deal with the challenges they face successfully which in turn increases their confidence and leads to better family relationships.
