Au-some project for Inverclyde Libraries

Inverclyde Libraries was successful in securing funding from the Scottish Government Public Library Improvement Fund earlier this year, to improve access to library services for those with autism along with their families and/or carers. Its Au-some Libraries Project will help ensure the services it provides are autism accessible, offering the same opportunities that are available to all Inverclyde Library users, coupled with the provision of some unique learning opportunities.

In order to achieve this successfully and maximise the funding impact, the Inverclyde Libraries team would like to consult with people with autism. They have already spoken to schools working with children with autism but now seek feedback from young adults who have left secondary education. They want to know how libraries could meet their specific needs in terms of resources and/or services.

To help set up focus groups who they could consult with early in the New Year, Inverclyde Libraries now seeks support from its third sector partners who work with young adults who have autism.
