NACP partners with local authorities

NACP Progress 1The National Autism Co-ordination Project continues to work with areas which do not have a draft or finalised autism strategy.  Most plans have now been submitted, and the team is working in partnership with several areas to support them in bringing their drafts into final versions. Submitted plans can be viewed here.

The team has been working in partnership with NHS Education for Scotland (NES) on the roll out of the Autism Training Framework and recently published Training Plan.  NES has presented at several recent joint events and a range of outreach visits around the country are being planned.

The team is also increasingly working with integration shadow boards, tasked with bringing health and social work together.

Finally, the team is working in partnership with Julie Haslett, a Joint Improvement Team associate, who has been appointed by Scottish Government to support the One Stop Shops’ sustainability.  The team will be meeting with her soon to discuss synergies with the National Co-ordination work.
