Thursday, 22 July 2021

Improving the lives of autistic people is the focus of a new multi-million pound strategy launched by the government.

Backed by nearly £75 million in the first year, it aims to speed up diagnosis and improve support and care for autistic people. The funding includes £40 million through the NHS Long Term Plan to improve capacity in crisis services and support children with complex needs in inpatient care.
