Autism Strategy so far Click to get info
We want to thank everyone who has taken part in the engagement on our All-age Autism Strategy so far. Over the last few months, we have had lots of valuable feedback and ideas for the future.
We have been engaging with residents, partners, and internal colleagues and have set up an Autism Task and Finish Group to lead this work with representatives from different areas and organisations.
We recently presented our plans for the strategy to Scrutiny Committee
We are holding another session during Autism Awareness Week: details can be found at the bottom of this page.
Our survey is also still open so if you have not yet had a chance to share your views please do.
Based on your views so far we have drafted the following priorities. Please note we are still engaging so these are subject to change over the coming weeks.
- Starting out well
- Fair access to quality education and learning
- Supporting families and networks
- Keeping autistic people safe from harm
- Promoting mental health and wellbeing
- Improving access to quality and inclusive local services at the right time
- Taking a lifespan approach (including transitions and aging well)
- Opportunities and Employment
- The right home and housing
- Inclusive Communities
We are bringing together all of the views and thoughts we have had so far to help us write the strategy and will share the draft strategy on this page soon as well as a summary of what we have found. We are aware that the National Autism Strategy is due to be published this Spring and will ensure this is reflected in our final strategy. We hope to have a final draft this Summer.
