About the Strategy

Lincolnshire’s All-ages Autism Strategy 2015-2018 was launched on 2nd April 2015, which was World Autism Awareness Day. It is the first ever local autism strategy for Lincolnshire.

The strategy builds on the governments national autism strategy for Adults in England, Fulfilling and Rewarding Lives (2010), as well as the refreshed national strategy, Think Autism (2014).

The decision was made to create an All-Age Autism Strategy for Lincolnshire rather than just producing one for adults. This came about following the engagement with key stakeholders and further consultation was completed to develop a strategy that reflects the needs of people with autism of all ages that live in the county.

Lincolnshire’s All-Age Autism Strategy 2015-2018 was produced by Lincolnshire County Council and the four Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), working closely with the Lincolnshire Autism Partnership Board and the National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTI).

The Lincolnshire Autism Partnership Board is responsible for overseeing the implementation of the local autism strategy. There is an action plan within the strategy and the Board monitors progress being made against key pieces of work to deliver this.

Strategy Refresh

We are approaching the end of the 3 year period for the current local autism strategy. Over the next few months we will be engaging with members of the Autism Partnership as well as wider stakeholders, to identify the key areas and priorities that we need to focus on in the coming years. This will enable us to develop new content for a refreshed version of the strategy.

The current national autism strategy, Think Autism, contains a set of 15 Priority Challenges for Action that have been identified as areas to progress. We have agreed to adopt these within our refreshed local strategy but we need to localise the challenges to the specific needs in Lincolnshire and agree on the most important issues to concentrate our efforts on.

It is intended that a refreshed Lincolnshire All-Age Strategy will be released in April 2018, covering our strategic ambitions for the next 3 years through to 2021.
