The way our society is systematically structured creates barriers for disabled people, particularly in employment. An Autism Accreditation Scheme, if run properly and with the input of autistic people, would begin to tackle these barriers.
“As an independent country, we can be decision-makers, partners, bridge-builders. And we have a right, if a majority of us want it, to choose that future.”
With independence, we can and will create a wealthier, fairer, greener country – and an economy that values its citizens and contributes to their collective wellbeing.
My message to all of us is this: Keep heart, keep the heid and keep the faith. The plan is set, the path is before us. The chance to choose an independent future for Scotland is coming.
Faith in Scotland’s future, faith in placing that future in our own hands. That has been at the heart of our party’s purpose since the day it was founded. Now, it is at the heart of our nation.
We need to convert those who are not yet SNP voters, to stand alongside us, and we must engage with the No voters of today to deliver the Yes votes of tomorrow.

The size of our economy, our highly educated workforce, the abundance of natural resources, and cutting-edge innovation – all of them demonstrate that Scotland’s got what it takes to become a prosperous and thriving independent nation.
