KEEP THE PROMISE AUTISM AWARENESS CAMPAIGN
EDM #153
Tabled 07 June 2010
2010-12 Session
That this House welcomes the launch of the UK Autism Foundation's (UKAF) Keep the Promise Autism Awareness Campaign; backs the UKAF call for the Government to introduce an autism strategy for children and an autism strategy for the elderly as they are the missing pieces of the autism jigsaw in the United Kingdom; notes that UKAF has called on the Government to launch a new autism stakeholders group in order for genuine and real partnership working on autism to take place between small, medium and large autism charities and Ministers of the Government; further notes that the charity has called for permanent increases in the disability living allowance, the carer's allowance, child benefit and tax credits as many carers are working over 70 hours a week and receive 72 pence an hour according to charities; calls for all avenues to be open through mainstream, special and specialist autism schools; further notes that the UKAF has requested the Government to launch state-funded autism schools and autism academies; pays tribute to the thousands of carers who are working 24 hours looking after children and adults with autism and Asperger's syndrome; and urges the Government to provide more help and support for the vulnerable, especially poor families and people with autism and Asperger's syndrome.
