Autism Ar­gyll winds up

Argyllshire Advertiser - - REVIEW OF THE YEAR – JULY TO DECEMBER -

After 18 years, a group set up by fam­i­lies af­fected by autism voted at its an­nual gen­eral meet­ing to cease op­er­a­tions, cit­ing ‘lack of sup­port from se­nior man­age­ment over many years’ at Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil as a pri­mary rea­son for the de­ci­sion.

The coun­cil said it was work­ing with part­ners on res­i­den­tial re­sources in Gare­lochhead and He­lens­burgh and im­prov­ing ser­vices for peo­ple with autism across Ar­gyll and Bute through the Autism Tool­box.
