Have your say on the North Yorkshire Autism Strategy

19 July 2023
People and communities across North Yorkshire are being asked to have their say on the the North Yorkshire Autism Strategy 2024 – 2026.

Autism is a lifelong developmental condition which affects how people communicate and interact with the world. North Yorkshire Council, the North Yorkshire NHS, and the community and voluntary sector in North Yorkshire want to make sure the lives of autistic people who live or work in North Yorkshire improve.

Funded by North Yorkshire Council, Inclusion North facilitates the North Yorkshire Autism Strategy survey. Please fill in the survey here. Further information on the previous Autism Strategy can be found on the North Yorkshire Partnerships website.

The new North Yorkshire Autism Strategy will be developed based on the six National Strategy commitments for autistic children, young people and adults 2021 – 2026:

  • Improving understanding and acceptance of autism within society
  • Improving autistic children and young people’s access to education, and supporting positive transitions into adulthood
  • Supporting more autistic people into employment
  • Tackling health and care inequalities for autistic people
  • Building the right support in the community and supporting people in inpatient care
  • Improving support within the criminal and youth justice systems
  • An additional theme has been included: support for parent and carers (who may themselves be autistic).
