On the 14th March 2019 Derby Council launched an autism consulation. For more details please read the message below:
Today, with the Department for Education, we have launched a national call for evidence to inform our review of the autism strategy. The call for evidence is inviting views from autistic people, their families and carers as well as those of professionals. It is aimed at finding out what is working and where progress has been made and importantly where we need to push harder to transform the lives of autistic people, their families and carers.
The call for evidence can be accessed online at the following link https://consultations.dh.gov.uk/autism/2e4ae18d and is open for responses until 16 May 2019.
As well as the opportunity to give views online, we are working with organisations and networks, to organise face to face sessions with groups of autistic people, including children and young people.
We are keen to gather as many views as possible and would be very grateful if you could share the link via your websites, networks and social media.
