Different Minds. One Scotland.

Find out more regarding our ‘Different minds. One Scotland.’ campaign.

In October 2020 we were very proud to launch the ‘Different minds. One Scotland.’ campaign. This campaign aims to deliver a clearer understanding of autism and dispel the myths surrounding it, leading to greater acceptance and increased understanding of autism, both what it is and what it is not. The campaign has been developed to support the vision which underpins The Scottish Strategy for Autism, and has been created in partnership with autistic people.

Today the ‘Different minds.  One Scotland.’ campaign will go live again to continue to dispel the myths and increase understanding of autism.  The campaign will run across TV, Cinema, Digital, Social and PR channels from 17th January to 13th February.
