Developing skills. Building confidence.

Upmo is an Edinburgh-based charity providing support and opportunity for adults with learning difficulties and autism. For more than a decade, we’ve been combining tailored support services with an increasingly respected curriculum of creative workshops, educational activities and vocational programmes.

We’re often asked what drives us, and the answer is simple – a passionate belief that every person in society should be given the opportunities they need to develop their potential and play an equal, inclusive and rewarding role in their communities.

Every week, we encourage our students to build confidence, use imagination and develop life skills through music, drama, art and other expressive and physical activities. We also offer trainee placements as part of our growing work experience programme
