Motion text

That this House is aware of the forthcoming publication of the revised Adult Autism Strategy; notes that, since the passing of the Autism Act 2009, the implementation of that Act has so far been patchy, with some areas taking the correct steps to reform services, whilst others are significantly lagging behind with the necessary changes; is further aware that the National Autistic Society has highlighted areas of concern yet to be addressed by the relevant Government departments, which includes the introduction of an innovation fund to encourage the development of new and innovative models of provision for people with autism which can be shared by different authorities, and the introduction of a community-based awareness-raising scheme; and calls on the Government to listen to such sound advice that will undoubtedly help the delivery of an autism strategy which is fit for purpose.
