Number 6 One-Stop Shop

Number 6 is a service for adults (16 and over) with High Functioning Autism (HFA) or Asperger Syndrome (AS) who live in the Lothians and the Borders. The service is provided by Autism Initiatives UK and was officially launched in June 2005, with the opening of the Number 6 One-Stop Shop.


There are now three distinctive strands within Number 6:
One-Stop Shop (providing free social opportunities and 1-1 advice and support on a range of issues);
Outreach (funded packages of 1-1 support);
Housing.


Anyone interested in using the services at Number 6 should book an appointment to meet with a member of staff, who will give you a brief induction to the resources available.
