Merton Autism Strategy Public Engagement


Autism touches the lives of many people in Merton. It is a life-long condition affecting about 1 in every 100 people. It affects how people see, hear and feel the world. Everyone with autism will experience it differently.

Merton Council wants Merton to be an autism-friendly borough in which people with autism are able to reach their full potential at all stages of their lives. Merton Council and Merton NHS Clinical Commissioning Group have developed a strategy for the next five years which includes all ages - children, young people and adults with autism and the needs of families and carers. They have listened to the views of a wide range of people in developing this strategy.
