Overview

In April 2014 the government published "Think Autism, Fulfilling and rewarding lives, the strategy for adults with Autism in England; an update.

This update to the 2010 strategy sets out the new challenges people with autism and other stakeholders have set for us. They have identified 15 priority challenges for action where they wanted to see further change. This is an area where we can all make a difference. Each of us should ask ourselves what we know about autism, what we could do in our work and in our communities to make them more accessible to people with autism. It is time for all of us to think autism.

 

Why We Are Consulting

With the new government strategy update it is time to update our local strategy, in order to do this effectively we need to involve people that are on the Autism spectrum and people that have knowledge of the spectrum including parents and carers.

What Happens Next

All of the feedback and comments will be collated and will then form part of the new strategy for Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

The strategy will be published online.

There will be a working group, made up of service users that will be involved in the process going forward, and will work to address key issues
