Surrey’s All Age Autism Strategy 2021-2026 launched

The Surrey All Age Autism Strategy Framework 2021 – 2026 has recently been launched.

It has been brought together by autistic children, young people, adults and family carers together with professionals from across Surrey’s service system, to give an overview of joint ambitions and priorities, and the workstreams which are being put in place to deliver them.

The aim is to achieve an autism friendly approach across Surrey in education, health, social care, work, businesses and communities. It is hoped services will have a more joined-up, proactive, timely and autism-accessible offer, so that autistic people have equality of access. They also hope that the strategy will promote a cultural shift so that community and service settings are understanding and welcoming for autistic children and adults.

The five-year implementation of the strategy will continue with a commitment to ongoing involvement and engagement with Surrey’s community of autistic people and family carers. A fuller implementation plan will be published for each of the strategy’s five workstreams, including timescales and how the changes will be monitored, this July.

The Framework and Easy Read version are available on the Surrey Learning Disability and Autism Partnership Board’s website.
