PEOPLE in Somerset have been invited to have their say on plans to help shape autism services in the region.

Somerset Autism Planning Group wants suggestions to improve services for people with autism to help finalise a strategy to be published next spring.

Cllr William Wallace, Somerset County Council’s cabinet member for adult social care, said: “It is vital that the people who use these services give us their views on what is important to them and advise us on what our priorities should be.

“I would like to encourage people affected by autism to complete our survey between now and October 12 so their opinions are fully represented.”
