In partnership with Team United and delivered by our upskilled staff team, Autism FC is a programme which uses the power of football to break down barriers and allow neurodiversity to flourish, providing recreational and competitive football for children aged 10 to 16 years old with a diagnosis of autism or who are on the formal pathway to diagnosis. 

Regular training takes place in Perth on a weekly basis and there are optional opportunities for players to represent Saints in the Community in competitive league and Scottish cup events. 

Team United’s Autism Football Association is an initiative which promotes an environment where young people with Autism can play football and be part of a team, whilst adapting to the intense social and communicative demands they are likely to experience. Further to the football, social activities and outings are available for players to participate in too.

After only being together for 6-weeks, Saints in the Community players were invited to participate in the Autism League where they finished 6th in their league debut and reached the Semi Final of the Team United Scottish Cup! 2024 is already off to a flying start for the squad, recently being crowned Champions of the 2023/24 North Region Autism Football Championship, claiming promotion to the Premiership division!
