News

New reports available

Two new reports about the results of our latest online surveys are now available:

Educational Provision survey

This report analyses the results of the online survey that we created in June 2016. We have a very good response with over 200 responses received. To download the report, click here.

Autism Support Service for adults

We did not receive enough responses to compile a conclusive report from this online survey, therefore this is an outline and general summary of the responses we did receive. The survey was in two parts, part 1 was about the need for an autism support service for adults, and part 2 was about the Autism Support Service run by Autism Hampshire’s Community Access Team. To download the report, click here.

The results will be fed back to the Hampshire Autism Partnership Board.


Consultation on Autism and Mental Health

The South Hampshire Branch of the National Autistic Society, working in partnership with Hampshire Autism Voice, are undertaking a consultation about mental health services for children, young people and adults with autism. The consultation is being funded and supported by Healthwatch Hampshire. (Please note this consultation is about mental health services and not about your personal health issues nor the process of getting an autism diagnosis). The results of the consultation will be released in January 2017.

How can you contribute to this consultation? The online survey is now closed and the focus groups have already taken place, but we are still interviewing people with autism.

1:1 Interviews

Do you have autism or Asperger syndrome? Would you like to be interviewed as part of this consultation?

We would like to consult with 10 adults who have autism or Asperger syndrome about mental health services.

If you:

  • Live in Hampshire (excluding Southampton, Portsmouth or Isle of Wight)
  • Have experience of using or needing to use mental health services in the last 3 years
  • Can spare 30-40 minutes to be interviewed on the phone (or in some cases to meet up)

Then please contact Kath Cornish, Autism Hampshire Community Access Project Officer, Tel: 02380 766162, Email Kathryn.cornish@autismhampshire.org.uk


Reports of previous surveys

Reports of our previous surveys are available on the HAV Network - Survey page.


Can you assist us?

We are looking for the following groups of people below to participate in occasional surveys in order to gain your views on various aspects of how Autism is supported. This will be fed back anonymously to the HAPB.

Email is preferred but a postal option can be set up.

  • People with Autism
  • Families of people with Autism
  • Support Workers
  • Organisations that work with people with Autism    

With your help we can make sure that your views are represented and supported in the Hampshire Autism Strategies.

The database for contacts is continuing to be compiled. If you would like to take part in the surveys please email us at admin@hampshireautismvoice.org.uk indicating which groups you represent.
