“Neurodiversity” is a word used to explain the unique ways in which people's brains work, for example diagnosis of ADHD or Autism.
We each have our talents and our challenges and at Team United, we deliver programmes and initiatives that are designed to help people with a neurodiverse condition aged 10 to 24 years to connect, flourish, discover and shine.
Playing football and being part of a team can be challenging for young people with Autism.
Through our programmes and affiliated relationships we provide these young people with recreational and league structured opportunities to play the game. Our projects are designed to develop friendships, break down social barriers and develop new friendships whilst learning new things.
These award winning activities have been recognised by SportScotland, ScottishFA, Para Football Scotland and the National Lottery.
