The Scottish Strategy for Autism is being reviewed and Autism Network Scotland are facilitating four national consultation events which can be attended by autistic young people, adults, parents and carers. This consultation will help shape what the new priorities will be from April 2018. Your contribution to this process is vital.
The consultation will provide:
- An overview of The Scottish Strategy – now and in the future
- An opportunity to say what is working well and what needs to improve, so that the Strategy makes a real impact on the quality of life of individuals with autism and their families.
You can choose to attend any one of these four events regardless of your location.
