Essex All Age Autism Strategy 2020 to 2025

Autism touches the lives of many people in our county and can affect many aspects of life, from school to healthcare, to employment and social lives.

The Essex All Age Autism Strategy is a five-year partnership strategy that takes a whole life approach and encompasses children, young people, adults, older adults and their families and carers.

It has been developed by people with lived experience of autism including families and carers, Essex County Council officers, NHS clinical commissioning groups across Essex, voluntary and community partners and others within our community network.

We want to build on and focus on what people can do and where they want to get in life, rather than focusing on what people may find challenging.

As such, the strategy sets out clear objectives and constructive actions to work towards the vision of Essex as an autism inclusive county.

Delivery of the strategy will require that we continue to work in partnership for and with our communities to ensure its positive ambitions are achieved.
