Autistic young people support
A project created to help autistic young people into work is inviting residents from South Lanarkshire to apply and take positive steps towards finding employment.
The National Autistic Society Scotland’s Moving Forward project aims to help autistic 16 to 24-yearolds develop skills for the workplace, gain social confidence and find employment.
And the charity is asking autistic people from South Lanarkshire to get in touch if they would like help from a volunteer mentor.
Jim Doherty, programme manager, said: “The National Autistic Society Scotland’s Moving Forward project matches young autistic people with volunteer mentors to help them overcome challenges and achieve employment related goals.”
