Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

Highland One Stop Shop (HOSS) is a free, person-centred service for autistic adults aged 16+ living in Highland, as well as their families/carers and professionals.

HOSS offers free social groups and activities, scheduled drop-in times and 1-1
appointments for advice and support on a range of topics.  We also have an
NHS Diagnostician based at Albion House, which enables us to work in
partnership to provide pre and post diagnostic support to adults contemplating or going through assessment.

Anyone interested in using the services can drop in or contact a member of staff.  You can phone or email yourself, or get someone to do it for you.  You can also bring someone you trust with you when you come along.  You will be given a brief induction to the services and resources available, these include:

  • Scheduled drop-in sessions, social groups and activities.

  • Friendly telephone answering service – Monday 10.30-12.30 where you can speak to a member of staff or arrange an appointment.

  • One-to-one appointments with experienced staff.

  • Service User Forum.

  • Partnership working with other agencies and groups such as parent groups and other voluntary organisations.

  • Computer room with internet access.

  • We also welcome hearing from you if you’re able to offer some time, however small, to help out whether at a drop in or with one of our groups/activities.
