Towards a Scottish Borders Autism Strategy Survey Launched

Categories: News

The Scottish Strategy for Autism was published in 2011; marking growing recognition that autism deserves an agenda in its own right. The development of the national strategy ensures progress will continue to be made in delivering quality services for individuals on the spectrum.


In response to the national agenda for autism, the Scottish Borders Council and NHS Borders have developed a joint local strategy, to ensure the needs of individuals on the spectrum of all ages living in the Borders will be acknowledged, and addressed.


This joint plan looks at the priority areas of need, as identified through the national autism mapping project, conducted in 2013.


The mapping project asked people with autism, their parents and carers and professionals what they thought was working well, what needs to improve and any gaps in existing service provision, in the Borders.


We are looking to collect your views on these priorities and would value your personal stories and experience.


You can provide these by completing this questionnaire.
