West Lothian Council – Autism Strategy Survey

Categories: News

At the end of 2015 the Scottish Government set out four key areas that will help improve the quality of life for people with autism, their families and the wider community. The four key areas are:


A Healthy Life     Choice & Control      Independence     Active Citizenship


West Lothian Council and its partners (NHS, Police Scotland, West Lothian College and Voluntary Sector etc.) are keen to review their local Autism Strategy and want to make sure the four key areas are included.

To help them make sure they get this right in West Lothian they need your views and would kindly ask you to complete the survey by clicking on the link below.





Who is this survey for?

  • Children, young people and adults who have a diagnosis of autism
  • Parent, carers and other family members of individuals who have a diagnosis of autism
  • Individuals, professionals, volunteers etc. who work with or come into contact with individuals who have a diagnosis of autism

The survey should take you about 15 – 20 minutes to complete and a separate survey should be completed for each person who wants to give their views for example a parent and a child (2 surveys).   To do this simply complete once and then when finished click on the link again.

All information gathered through this survey will be held confidentially by West Lothian Council, you do not have to give your name so individuals cannot be identified.

West Lothian Council expect a report on the key results of the survey to be produces in February 2017 and this will be made widely available.   The outcome of this survey will help them inform the West Lothian Autism Strategy Action Plan and help them to identify the areas they need to prioritise.
