Have your say on North Yorkshire's Autism Strategy-- Workshop Planning Sessions September 2023
The Autism Strategy steering group have recently undertaken a number of engagement events with people across North Yorkshire that will inform the joint all age Autism strategy across the Heath sector, Local Authority and the community voluntary sector.
This engagement has been about the lives of autistic people – where they live, where they go to school or work and the communities within which they live. The strategy in North Yorkshire will be developed based on the six National Strategy commitments for autistic children, young people and adults 2021 – 2026.
- 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.
We have also included an additional theme, support for parent and carers (who may themselves be autistic).
