From our unique position of working with families we are able to advise local statutory organisations about the needs of these families. We have excellent working relationships with all three local authorities – Bedford Borough Council, Central Bedfordshire Council and Luton Borough Council. We work closely with Social Services, and the Education and Health Departments and can report to them on the shortfalls of the statutory services as well as any positive feedback.

Currently Autism Bedfordshire is actively involved in the development and implementation of the Autism Strategy in Bedfordshire and Luton.
