Update on the autism strategy
We’re getting in touch because we have an update on the new autism strategy, which is the Government’s plan to improve services and support for autistic people and their families. The strategy was due to come out at the end of last year, but it was delayed because of the General Election. The Government has recently announced that the strategy will now come out this Spring.
So far, thousands of you have participated in our campaign by telling your MPs that there is not enough support for autistic people and their families. Together, we have pushed the Government to publish the strategy as soon as possible after the election, because autistic people cannot wait. Autism diagnosis waiting times are far too long and accessing mental health services is a nightmare. The new autism strategy is our opportunity to change this.
In March, autistic people and their families will be meeting MPs in Parliament to talk about how the strategy will impact them. One of our campaigners will be in touch to tell you how those meetings went. In the meantime, we’ll keep you updated on any news we receive on the strategy.
Thanks again for your support.
