A key finding of the Autism Forum meetings in 2016 and 2017 was the need for basic Autism Awareness training for key professionals in Health and social care services, other organisations such as the voluntary sector and public services such as the police. In Partnership with Wiltshire Council, Wiltshire Autism Diagnostic Services (WADS) and Volunteers with Autism, WSUN ran a number of 1/2 day training courses for front-line staff . This course was developed and delivered in partnership with people with Autism to over 200 people in 2017/18.
The training was very well received, a further, more detailed training course is currently being delivered to Wiltshire Council personnel.
WSUN has plans via it’s work with the Wiltshire Autism Hub to offer further training to other organisations and communities in order to increase understanding.
