Why are we here?

The Transforming Neurodiversity Support Programme began in November 2020.

The aims of the programme are for all people to get the right support when it is needed.

We want people with learning disabilities, autistic people and people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder to work in partnership on the programme.

We are supporting lots of work to help people live better lives.

As a board we have created a vision for the programme which says what we want to happen:

The Transforming Neurodiversity Support programme offers support to and alongside autistic people, those with a learning disability and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

It is our goal to ensure that all staff are trained to support an individual as a whole, including their families/ carers and loved ones when it is needed (before, during and after diagnosis).

It is our ambition that this programme will help create access to new local treatment, new opportunities and local care for those in crisis, and those who have an ongoing struggle, and will work in partnership with different services and organisations.
