Angus Adult Learning Disability Resource Centres receive prestigious Autism accreditation

Angus Health and Social Care Partnership’s three adult learning disability resource centres, Lochlands in Arbroath, Lilybank in Forfar, and Rosehill in Montrose have been recognised for their commitment to excellence in supporting autistic young people after achieving the National Autistic Society Advanced Award.

The National Autistic Society’s Advanced Award recognises providers of education, social care and health who demonstrate exceptional standards in autism practice. The accreditation process evaluates evidence-informed approaches and the ability to tailor support to individual needs.

The Autism Accreditation Committee highlighted the centres’ robust working knowledge of evidence-informed approaches associated with good autism practice. Staff demonstrated the ability to adapt specialist approaches to ensure support is highly-person centred, tailored to individual abilities, interests, preferences, and challenges.

Angus Health and Social Care Partnership’s Chief Officer Jillian Galloway said:

“I’m delighted our adult resource centres, Lochlands, Lilybank and Rosehill have received this award from the National Autistic Society. It highlights and confirms their dedication to fostering an environment where every autistic individual involved with the centres can not only thrive but develop essential skills to enhance their confidence and promote independence.

“But it doesn’t stop there as our staff are committed to building on existing good practice and will continue to ensure our centres remain examples of support and inclusion within our community.”
