The Society is an independent Scottish charity working for the nights and quality of life of people with autism in Scotland. We are committed to working with our stakeholders in partnership to build a better quality of life for people with autism. And we continually strive to develop leading –edge practice and knowledge to ensure people with autism in Scotland can access the best possible services.
In order to do this we rely on fundraising activities and have a number of particularly interesting ‘ Challenge Events’ organized last year including treks to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Mount Everest Base Camp in Nepal and to the home of the Dalai Lama in India.
For most foreign treks, there is a sponsorship requirement of between £2,000 and £3,000 and required fitness levels would depend upon the trip undertaken.
However, it is likely the most people would require to undertake a training regime in preparation and a medical certificates in necessary for all treks.
