The Region will be running two autism workshops in early 2020 to support our local leaders. The workshops will be supported by the National Autistic Society Scotland and will provide an opportunity to share and explore strategies for supporting young people with autism in Scouting.

 We are also hoping to include a session on therapeutic gardening which is all about inclusive activities for those who sometimes experience challenges in joining in.

The workshops will last 4 hours and we anticipate having approx. 30 spaces available at each venue.

 The workshops will take place between 10am to 2pm: 

  • Saturday 28th March – Edinburgh @ 31st Pentland Hall, 45 Lanark Road West, Currie, EH14 5JX 
  • Sunday 29th March – Borders @ Melrose Scout Hall, Abbey Place Melrose

The courses will be available to book on the South East Scotland website soon.
