New autism training to upskill workforce

12 September 2023

We’re funding a new Living Well with Autism training programme designed to help organisations offer better support to autistic people.

Designed to give staff the skills to support and help autistic people, the free online course is run by Derbyshire Autism Services and is aimed at those working on the frontline. The monthly sessions cover a wide range of topics including:

  • creating autism-friendly environments
  • understanding other conditions that can affect autistic people
  • where you can find help and support.

The course has been co-developed by and is facilitated by autistic people and is for any public-facing roles, including health and social care staff, other local authority staff, the emergency services, housing providers and the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector.

For more information and to refer yourself onto the course visit the autism section on our website, email or call 01773 741221
