North Tyneside Autism Strategy

North Tyneside launched its Autism Strategy in 2021, as part of this strategy there is a five year plan of work. A small amount of funding has been secured to explore the possibilities of a Peer Support Network for Autistic people living in North Tyneside. The aim is to ensure that lived experience informs all of the work within the five year plan and that informed recommendations are made to the multi-agency steering group. It’s important that as many Autistic people as possible are involved to create a peer support offer that is meaningful and brings value to the community it will serve. They are looking for an organisation or highly motivated individual who can support this mapping and planning exercise in order that they can create a proposal to be able to have a strong and sustainable offer. If you are interested in hearing more, or have any questions, then please contact either Jo jo@ntpcf.co.uk or Kellie kellie.woodley@inclusionnorth.org
