Autism & Neurodiversity North Scotland

Autism & Neurodiversity North Scotland (A-ND) was founded in 1987 by a small group of parents & professionals (Rose Clayton MBE), who were concerned for the needs of autistic individuals. Previously known as Grampian Autistic Society, we were the first organisation of our kind in the region to offer help & support to autistic individuals, their families & wider support networks.


Beginning as a support group, we have slowly expanded over time, firstly as a parent-run organisation & later constituted into a charity in 1989. As of May 2023, we have a staff team of 50 people & provide direct, ongoing support & services to 150 individuals & their families throughout Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Moray & North Scotland, as well as providing support groups in person & online.
