Campaigners say autistic people are being left to “fall through the cracks” by the social care system.
Analysis carried out by the Health Foundation for BBC News suggests around 10 per cent of social care staff have had any training in how to support people with autism.
And the National Autistic Society say more than 300,000 people are not getting their needs met by their local social services. That’s despite 5.6 billion pounds – 40% of local authority spending on social care – being spent on people with learning disabilities and autism.
