Default Help and advice needed

My daughter who is 17 has ASD. She's been brought up mostly by her father . with my mental health he was considered the better parent at the time .
He is abandoning her , doesn't want her any more . i am going to be putting myself forward to being assessed for her to live with me .
The thing is her ASD is not severe , but he has treated her as if it is so he can get maximum money for her ( for himself actually ) . she can communicate really well and i think she is capable of achieving a lot in life but she believes she can't . he has taken her confidence away . how to i teach her new skills and build her confidence and aim for her to be confident to go out on her own or stay home alone for at least short periods of time ? Any tips or advice will be helpful . either here or inbox me . thx so much
