Scottish Autism Inclusive Governance Project

Inclusive Governance logoThe Scottish Autism Inclusive Governance Project was conducted by three autistic-led organisations, the National Autistic Taskforce (NAT), Autism Rights Group Highland (ARGH) and Autistic Mutual Aid Society Edinburgh (AMASE) on behalf of Scottish Autism, Scotland’s largest provider of autism-specific services and a leading authority and advocate for good autism practice.

The final project report is now available here and a summary report here. The final report was launched at a webinar on the 13th of December 2023, view the replay below:

The slides from the webinar are available here.

The project team engaged with Scottish Autism’s supported individuals and their families, board of trustees, senior and wider leadership team, staff and the wider autistic community to develop an inclusive governance approach that would maximise participation amongst the charity’s key stakeholders. Read the original announcement press release here.

The aim was to answer the following questions:

  • Did participants feel that they had a say in the decisions Scottish Autism makes?
  • How could Scottish Autism become more inclusive in the way that decisions are made?

Participants could engage with us via individual interview, group discussion, survey or e-mail.
