  • NAS Plus

    We work in partnership with West Lothian Council and NHS Lothian to deliver NASPlus, a project that provides free, tailored support to autistic people.

    The NASPlus team helps autistic adults to identify goals and select activities and training to meet those goals. This could include:

  • Independent travel
  • Social skills
  • Understanding autism
  • The project is available for people who:

  • live in West Lothian
  • are aged 16 or over
  • have a diagnosis of autism or are in the process of getting a diagnosis
  • want to improve their confidence and self-management skills so they can live healthier, more independent lives
  • have struggled to access support services previously due to being perceived as being reasonably independent
  • NASPlus is funded by the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland.

    To find out more, email NASplus@nas.org.uk or phone 07435 786 016
