To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide an update on the evaluation of the Scottish Strategy for Autism 2011-21, and how it plans to respond to this.
Current status: Answered by Kevin Stewart on 24 September 2021
The Scottish Government has published the Evaluation of the Scottish Strategy for Autism 2011-21 today. In response I am delighted to announce £650k this financial year, for tests of change on adult neurodevelopmental pathways. Additionally I can announce new funding of £425k to trial the Scottish Government’s new Learning Disability and Autism leadership and engagement work, from the Recovery and Renewal fund. I would also like to announce £400k for the understanding autism project charity funding. This represents a substantive package of support of £1.4m, £1m of which is new funding from the Recovery and Renewal fund.
The evaluation is available to view at: https://www.gov.scot/isbn/9781802013696
