Info graphic for Autism Act campaign - tracking the Autism Act strategy

 

To mark the 10th anniversary of the Autism Act, our charity has been working with the All Party Parliamentary Group on Autism to explore what has worked, what isn’t working and what needs to change to support autistic people.

What's happened so far?

We launched a survey in January asking autistic people and their families about their experiences of care and support. We received over 10,000 responses which has given us a wealth of information and personal experiences to explore.

Since March, we are holding inquiry sessions in Parliament with witnesses (autistic people, family members and professionals) exploring key themes including mental health, public understanding, employment, support for children, support in adulthood and access to justice.

  • Compile your survey responses and stories into a report with key recommendations to the Government about what needs to change
  • Campaign for change
