Improving the lives of autism sufferers
AN AUTISM conference aimed to inspire, inform and involve young adults in the county.
The event, which was held on Friday, November 6, brought together a range of services from around Buckinghamshire, which aim to improve the lives of people with autism.
Communications manager at Carers Bucks, Hayley Mountstevens, said: “The event was a huge success with more than 150 attendees and over 40 services from across Buckinghamshire, which provide support and guidance for young adults with autism accessing higher education, employment and training in Bucks.
“The conference also saw the launch of the new website for adults with autism living in Bucks www.autismbucks.org.”
Inspirational speakers related their own personal experiences of living with autism and encourage those challenged by the autistic condition to access the services now available to them in Buckinghamshire.
The event was held at The Gateway in Aylesbury and was attended by Chesham and Amersham MP, Cheryl Gillan.
