At their meeting on 22nd May, the Sheffield Autism Partnership planning group adopted a set of draft proposals about the ‘next steps’ for the partnership in Sheffield.
This means that Sheffield now has an Autism Partnership Board, in accordance with the Department of Health Statutory Guidance on adult autism. The board will work to improve the provision of services and support for autistic adults and their families in Sheffield, including young autistic persons in transition to adulthood.
See here for the full text of the proposals – Draft Sheffield APB Next Steps – adopted at the meeting, but note that the draft terms of reference for the board have not yet been agreed and are still to be finalised.
For the background to these proposals and further information about the public consultation / survey held during December 2016 to February 2017 see the Partnership page.
Full minutes of the meeting of 22nd May will be published on the Partnership page of this website, as soon as they are available.
