The aim is to find out what is working, where progress has been made and where there needs to be further development to transform the lives of autistic people, their families and carers.

There will be opportunities to give views both online and at face-to-face sessions. The call for evidence can be accessed online at the following link https://consultations.dh.gov.uk/autism/2e4ae18d and is open for responses until 16 May 2019.
