The Sheffield Autism Partnership

Sheffield Autism Partnership Board

Sheffield’s Autism Partnership Board meets 6 times a year to improve the provision of services and support for autistic adults and their families in Sheffield, including young autistic persons in transition to adulthood. Members include representatives from Sheffield City Council and local NHS bodies, community and voluntary sector organisations and services; autistic adults, their parents, carers and family members, professionals and other relevant organisations and individuals.

The Sheffield Autism Partnership Board Terms of Reference  were agreed and adopted at the meeting of 2nd October 2017.

For a list of downloadable Sheffield Autism Partnership key documents, together with the agenda and minutes of recent meetings of the Sheffield Autism Partnership Steering Group / Autism Partnership Board  see this page.

In December 2017 Frazer Kirk of Sheffield City Council, sent out a ‘progress report’ about the Sheffield Autism Partnership and Autism Partnership Board, and an invitation to become involved.  The Partnership and the Board still need more people and organisations to become involved if they are to be successful in their goal of improving services and support to autistic people and their families and carers in Sheffield.

If you would like to become involved please contact frazer.kirk@sheffield.gov.uk
