This document sets out a clear programme the Department of Health and other government departments will be taking to improve the lives of people with autism, primarily through taking actions that will support local authorities, the NHS, other public services, and their partners with their local implementation work.

It has a new focus on building communities that are more aware of and accessible to the needs of people with autism. It also looks at promoting innovative local ideas, services, or projects that can help people in their communities and how advice and information on services can be better joined up. There is a package of funding of £4.5 million which the Department of Health will be using to take forward themes in the strategy update.
