"A lifesaver"

Accessing support for everything from form filling to developing friendship groups.

Our One Stop Shops support more than 3,000 people each year

In Scotland and Wales there are One Stop Shops, where autistic people can access support and advice for everyday life. 

“It has been a lifesaver. I have met new people after being isolated for years.”

Scotland

Our Number 6 One Stop Shop started in 2005 in Edinburgh for people with Aspergers.  It was (and still is) an innovative way to provide support, advice and social opportunities to autistic people.  The service quickly grew and we now support over 2,700 autistic people across three Scottish One Stop Shops in Edinburgh, Inverness and Perth.  

From their bases and through community outreach services our One Stop Shops offer support and services to autistic people throughout the following areas Edinburgh, Lothians, Scottish Borders, Highland and Perth & Kinross 

“I actually wanted to commit suicide in the past, as I had no hope in life and felt I was going crazy. Now I have staff and friends who have confidence in me and I am achieving things in life.”

Wales

In 2015 we helped found the first one stop shop for autism in Wales - 21 High Street in Cardiff through the charity Autism Spectrum Connections Cymru which now supports more than 300 people every year.

“Without the time you spent getting to know Michael, he would not have trusted you enough to tell you about the difficulties that he has on a daily basis.  Being successfully awarded both PIP and ESA has meant so much to both him and our family and has hopefully given him a small sense of security that we can build on”
