HOPE for Autism North Lanarkshire


HOPE for Autism is a charity focused on supporting the local community to embrace and support those with autism. By offering fun activity and social groups for children and young adults up to the age of 25 and providing support, training and intervention to families, we affect positive change in the lives of those living with autism.

We offer a person-centred approach to enable people living with autism and their families to make positive contributions to their local communities, while providing information and promoting awareness and understanding of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Through our dedicated range of staff and volunteers, we support over 230 families from North Lanarkshire.

We provide a commitment to our service users and our charity members, holding openness and accountability key values as we work to promote positive and inclusive lifestyles for individuals with ASD.

HOPE for Autism was established by a group of mothers who were unable to access the help the needed for their children in North Lanarkshire. In 2002 HOPE became a registered charity and established a support group for parents and carers. In June 2006 HOPE moved to the HOPE Centre in Chapel Street, Airdrie. HOPE is the most experienced third sector autism specific service offered in North Lanarkshire.
