Autism Network Scotland (ANS) was originally established in 2005 (as the Scottish Autism Services Network) with funding from the Scottish Government.

In 2011 ANS received further funding as part of the Scottish Government and COSLA’s National Autism Strategy to develop as a hub of professional autism support and information.

ANS continues to evolve as a small but essential centre of autism knowledge, skills and information in Scotland.

ANS also provides the administration and facilitation of the National Autism Strategy events and conferences.
