Surrey all age autism strategy consultation

Closed 21 Sep 2020

Opened 13 Jul 2020


Tell us how Surrey could be a better place for autistic people

Education, Care and Health services in Surrey are carrying out a public consultation, so that you can tell us the best way to support autistic people of all ages and their families.

Your feedback will decide what goes into our all age autism strategy. The strategy will help to determine what services we offer to meet the needs of autistic people and change the ways our community welcome and include those with autism.

We have designed our consultation in two stages to ensure that your views are captured and understood correctly.

First we will use this consultation to ask autistic children and adults, their parent/carers and those who support them about their current experiences. We will use the responses to create a draft strategy.

Once we have written a draft, we will share it with you to ask whether your views have been properly understood, and if the strategy will support autistic people and their families in the best possible way. Your comments and feedback will help shape the final strategy.

Why your views matter

There are approximately 12,000 autistic people in Surrey and a greater number of family members and people who support them. 

We also want to hear from those awaiting or without a diagnosis and the people who care for them. 

We want to hear all of your voices, how it is for you and what is the best way to support you, so along with the consultation below have produced online and paper easy read versions.
