Autism is part of the lives of many people in our area and can affect many aspects of life, from school to healthcare, to employment and social lives.
The national guidance “Implementing and Rewarding Lives” and “Think Autism” puts a statutory duty on local authorities and health services to have in place plans in relation to the provision of service for people with autism.
It states that local authorities and NHS bodies need to work in collaboration with local partners to take forward the key priorities in Think Autism.
This strategy for people with autism in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough has been brought together by children, young people, adults and family carers together with professionals from a wide range of local partners from across the region, to give an overview of joint ambitions and priorities.
We want to take time now to ensure that this co-produced strategy meets the needs of all people with autism across our area and gain the views of local people on the principles and priorities identified.
