Adult reference group

The Autism Reference Group is a group that has been set up to give the opportunity for autistic adults to have input into the Autism Strategy and the work that is being done to implement the strategy in Surrey. The reference group will ensure that the Autism Partnership Board hears views from a wide range of autistic adults across the county.

We work together to improve things for autistic people in Surrey.

The reference group will discuss a wide range of topics including employment, housing, health services and raising awareness.

Members can raise issues they feel are important.

The group meets 8 times a year. 4 are in the daytime and 4 are in the evening.

Meetings take place virtually.

Members do not need to attend all meetings and can also share their views by email.
