Autism strategy published

Autism Strategy

The Government has published a strategy to support people with autism. Find here a link to a Learning Disability today article which summarises the strategy, funding, focus and also reaction to it.

A link to the strategy document is here.

The strategy sets out six key areas in which to make improvements for autistic people. 

These are:

  • Improving understanding and acceptance of autism within society
  • Improving autistic children and young people’s access to education and supporting positive transitions into adulthood
  • Supporting more autistic people into employment
  • Tackling health and care inequalities for autistic people
  • Building the right support in the community and supporting people in inpatient care
  • Improving support within the criminal and youth justice systems

As an organisation we already have a focus on several of these key areas. These are underlined above.

We are proud to provide housing and support to many people with autism and will continue to do so.
