Young People

SCF wants to support young people with autism spectrum condition (ASC) who have been identified as missing out.

Young people with autism who attend secondary school and college have been identified as a particularly vulnerable group. They may be academically able, but can struggle to cope in a mainstream environment.

There are groups of autistic young people who have particular challenges, for example autistic girls, those at school/college transition points, students approaching exam time.

We ask people applying for SCF funding to clearly describe the young people they want to support.
