Kent County Council is launching its strategy for adults with autism on Tuesday, July 11 which sets out its future commitments and priorities.
In 2010, Government set out a requirement for all local authorities to have a strategy as described in the National Autism Strategy.
Across Kent, approximately over 13,000 individuals are living with autism and current estimates suggest over half these will have autism in the absence of a learning disability. This strategy addresses these individuals.
The launch event will be chaired by Anne Tidmarsh, Director for Older People and Physical Disability and will include an introduction by Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, Graham Gibbens
