Our Projects

Our Projects

At SEMA we have a network of translators who are either neurodivergent or careers of neurodivergent people. We work with Scottish Racialized communities to make connections, facilitate peer support and improve understanding of autism.

We are working with The Autistic Collective and East Renfrewshire Careers Centre to create resources in different languages. This is a small pilot where we will translate our ERCC Webinars into Urdu and Swahili. If these resources are helpful to your organization, contact us to collaborate on more translation work.

We are also delighted to announce that we are officially working with the Scottish Government to facilitate the LDAN Bill consultation. If your organization would like support to respond to the consultation please contact us. We will reach out to minority ethnic organizations in Scotland to facilitate events, but also create translated information for you to share with individuals. Our LDAN Bill page is a live working progress.


We offer autism understanding training with an anti-racism lens, highlighting the impact of intersectionality in all aspects of life of autistic people and their families. We use lived experience and our background in grassroots community activism to work for change. We are open to collaborate and provide training for the public, private and third sector.

Peer Support

We have a closed Facebook group exclusive to those identifying as racialised autistics living in Scotland. Click here to join .
We have been funded by the National Lottery Ethnic Minority Development Fund to create training resources on autism as well as creating peer support groups in central Scotland.
