Autism Independent UK helps to increase awareness of autism to the notice of all, together with well established and newly developed approaches in the diagnosis, assessment, education and treatment. The main goal is to improve the quality of life for persons with Autism, giving them a chance to take their rightful place within their local community where they can live, work and play.
We provide unique user-led services to over 600 families affected by autism across the UK. Our expectation is that people with autism can learn and develop to lead meaningful and fulfilled lives. We support this process every single day.

We are a community transport company offering affordable, accessible transport for all abilities within Badenoch & Strathspey.

Transport is the hub of what we do, but we also offer social inclusion activities, such as lunch and supper clubs, tea dances, befriending services, assisted shopping, community car scheme, support for visually impaired groups and a community link worker service. Our ultimate aim is to reduce social isolation and loneliness by helping people make and maintain social connections and participate in their community.

We listen to our members and strive to offer new services in line with their needs.
