The Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICS are looking at the way people with autism are supported from before their diagnosis through to end of life. We want to plan how to improve services in the future and how best to implement the national strategy locally and we would like your input into this.
We want to make sure that the right services are provided at the right time for children, young people and adults before they are diagnosed, immediately after diagnosis and over the longer term. We also need to ensure that we provide the right support to the families and carers of people with autism. We value your input as people with autism, carers and those working with people with autism as you are likely to know what people need and want, where there are any gaps in service provision and where improvements could be made.
You can provide your views by completing the questionnaires using the following links and feel free to share with your contacts

The closing date for responses is 28th January 2022 so please share your opinions with us. They will help us to plan future services and what you tell us will help us to see what may need to change in the future. There will be further opportunities to contribute to this work over the coming year as work is done to develop an action plan for implementing the strategy.
