About the Board

The Lincolnshire Autism Partnership Board was originally formed in 2009. This was in response to the introduction of the Autism Act 2009 and the government’s national autism strategy for adults followed this. The aim of the Board was to improve autism services for adults in Lincolnshire.

Members of the Partnership Board played a crucial role in pushing for the development of a local autism strategy for Lincolnshire and helped to inform the decision to produce an All-Age Strategy.

In January 2015 the Lincolnshire Autism Partnership Board was relaunched in readiness for the release of Lincolnshire’s All-Age Autism Strategy 2015-2018. The Board was given responsibility for implementing the local strategy and therefore, changes were made to the structure to make sure it was fit for purpose for this role.

The Board meets 4 times a year and its main role is to oversee the delivery of the action plan contained in the local autism strategy. It is also responsible for key pieces of work, such as approving the response to the Department of Health regarding the annual Autism Self-Assessment Framework.

A series of working groups have been set up to help progress the strategy action plan. These are based around specific themes and to help ensure autistic people and parents/carers have the opportunity to share their experiences and inform decisions being made. These groups are as follows;

  • A-Team Network
  • Awareness and Training Working Group
  • Data and Information Working Group
  • Service Provision Working Group
  • Lived Experience Forum

Each of the groups is made up of a range of people with a professional and/or personal interest in autism. They each have their own goals and plans that they work to in order to help implement key elements of the local strategy. A lead has been appointed for each of these groups, who attend the Partnership Board meetings to keep everyone updated on how their group is doing.
