Autism is a lifelong neurodevelopmental condition which affects the way that people experience, communicate, and interact with their environment.

This cross-departmental strategy, which runs until 2028, sets out the key commitments and actions needed to enhance and improve support for autistic people and their families. The actions have therefore been informed through extensive stakeholder engagement and consultation with autistic people and their families, and with the community and voluntary organisations who represent them.



Progress on implementation of the strategy will be monitored and reported on an annual basis. A further Delivery Plan will be developed post 2025.
