Representatives from the disability sector have been fully involved in developing proposals to mark the European Year of Disabled People in Scotland. A steering group of disability organisations and others with an interest was established during 2002 and has agreed aims and objectives and a programme of activity for the year. The steering group’s programme seeks to cover all types of disability, including autism, and seeks to ensure engagement across all sectors.

The steering group has no plans specifically to consult with the Scottish Society for Autism, the National Autistic Society and other autism groups regarding the European Year of Disabled People.
