Sheffield Autism Partnership Survey

Closed 13 Feb 2017

Opened 19 Dec 2016


In May 2015 a meeting about autism was held in Sheffield. More than 100 people attended, including autistic people, their families, and professionals from the council, health services and other organisations. They talked about the things that were important to people with autism and their family members. Afterwards groups were set up to suggest improvements around employment, autism awareness and training.

Now, as a further step, we have formed an Autism Partnership Steering Group to find ways to bring a lot more people together to improve opportunities and services for people with autism.

Government guidance says that each local authority must work with local NHS services to set up an Autism Partnership.  This partnership must include people with autism and their families, as well as the organisations, professional people and others who provide services to them.  The guidance covers all adults with autism spectrum conditions and young people in transition to adulthood. 

The Steering Group would like to suggest how an Autism Partnership for Sheffield could work but we would welcome your views. We have written this survey to find out what you think. The survey closes on 13th February 2017. We hope that the Partnership will start work as soon as possible after that date.
