Equal Futures is a charity which aims to reduce social isolation for people aged 16 and above in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Ayrshire with a learning disability or autism. We help our young adults to make friends, improve their social confidence, increase their social connections, and try new hobbies. We offer social events, 1:1 befriending and circles of support.
Our circles of support are unique to Scotland, and allow the person we support to set goals, with members of the circle facilitating their achievement. Members are people close to the person we support, volunteers, and a member of Equal Futures staff. Circles of support ensure that the person we support feels connected and supported.
Equal Futures is a welcoming community to which both the people we support and their families belong. We do not require a formal diagnosis as we know that this can be a difficult process for families. Please get in touch if you would like to access any of our support provisions.
