About the Strategy

The Lincolnshire All-ages Autism Strategy is in line with the National Autism Strategy Fulfilling and Rewarding Lives (2010).

The national strategy was refreshed in 2014 (Think Autism) and applies to adults with autism. Key actions and challenges include:

  • increasing awareness and understanding in services and in the community
  • developing timely diagnostic pathways
  • increasing access to mainstream services
  • building local capacity and capability
  • improving access to work
  • improving social inclusion
  • listening to the views and aspirations of people living with autism.

Lincolnshire has decided that instead of just creating an adult strategy we will create an all-age autism strategy. We have undertaken a series of engagements with key stakeholders in order to develop a strategy that reflects the needs of people with autism of all ages that live in the county.

The council and Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), working closely with the Lincolnshire Autism Partnership Board, the National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTI) and local providers drafted the Lincolnshire All-ages Autism Strategy.

The Strategy Launch

The strategy was launched on World Autism Awareness Day (2nd April 2015) at an event in Lincoln. The event was attended by councillors, local and national providers, officers from the adult and children’s social care teams, carers and, most importantly, people with lived experience of autism.

The launch showcased the creative talents of people with autism and set out our vision for the future of autism in the county. On show were works of art, poetry, stalls showcasing local groups, performances by those with autism and a human library of people with lived experience.
