National Autism Strategy community consultation

Local governments are invited to provide feedback and ideas for the Federal Government’s National Autism Strategy, being developed to help autistic people across Australia.

The Government has committed to delivering the National Autism Strategy and a range of ideas are based on information gathered through evidence and reviews and the outcomes of a Senate Select Committee Inquiry into services, support and life outcomes for Autistic Australians in 2022.

A stakeholder toolkit is available on the Department of Social Services website as well as a Discussion Paper.

The consultation is open until 30 October 2023 and you can make a submission here.
