The National Mapping Project has been a fact finding exercise and analysis of information relating to the delivery of services for individuals with autism across Scotland. Liz Catterson will provide an overview of the findings from the project.

Community capacity building and effective community engagement are essential in supporting communities to exercise more influence, realising their social and material assets and developing co-produced responses to the issues which affect them. This session will give a brief overview of the context and for co-production, outlining some key tools and resources and will invite participants to explore how asset-based approaches such as co-production can support the implementation of the Autism Strategy.

Lisa Pattoni, Acting Programme Manager, Institute for Research and Innovation in Social Services (IRISS)
