Plans to improve care for autism sufferers in Tower Hamlets
Autistic adults and teenagers are set to benefit from new care services to help them live independently.
Tower Hamlets Council is working with the East London NHS Foundation Trust to find out how people with autism and their carers think the services available to them could be improved.
Around 2,300 people in the borough suffer from autism, and the council is anxious to improve their quality of life.
Tower Hamlets’ lead member for health Cllr Abdul Asad said: “A key part of providing these services is ensuring the views of our residents are taken into consideration.
“The project team will be carrying out research to assess change in wellbeing and quality of life for people with autism accessing the new services and are keen to hear your views on current services.”
