Implementation plans: Autism

Staffordshire Autism Joint Implementation Plan 2020-2023 (355KB)

The Whole Life Disability Strategy 2018-2023 set out the Council’s vision for people with disabilities and a commitment to implement a series of Plans to improve services.

The Staffordshire Autism Joint Implementation Plan 2020-2023 is one of these Plans and during September and October 2019 Staffordshire County Council along with local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) held a number of drop-in engagement events, as well as establishing an online survey.

These events gave people with lived experience of Autism, providers and professionals the opportunity to share their experiences of how services currently work for people with Autism and their carers.

The plan, which is joint across Children & Young People and Adults, as well as across the County Council and CCGs, has been based around the 15 “I Statements” introduced via the Government’s Think Autism Strategy (2014). The feedback received from our engagement was used to inform the drafting of the Plan.

We are pleased to confirm that the draft Plan has been approved by the County Council’s full Cabinet and the CCG’s governance boards. A copy of the full Plan can be found on this webpage and I am pleased to say that an Autism Joint Implementation Group, including people with lived experience, has been established to start and oversee the implementation of the Plan.
