Description

The Adult Autism Strategy Fulfilling and Rewarding Lives was published in 2010.The coalition government have confirmed they will be publishing an updated Strategy in April 2014. The National Children’s Services policy is also being updated in particular Support and Aspiration.

In the context of this new national policy Lincolnshire wishes to develop an All age Autism Strategy which will cover both Children’s and Adults Services commissioning across local Authority and Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) responsibilities.

Through a collaborative process with key stakeholders, we seek to establish the local vision for the development and commissioning of services and support not only for adults but also for children and young people with autistic spectrum conditions and their carers. This will enable us to move forward to provide a more responsive, integrated and person-centred approach. These changes will then ensure that our future commissioning is in line both with the national agenda and local policy directives to deliver increased choice and flexibility in how health, education and care needs are met.
