  • By 2025, autistic people we employ will have a positive experience with us as employees. 
  • By 2026, we will have significantly improved the experience of autistic people accessing care and treatment from our services, moving toward our vision that all autistic people will have a positive experience of care and treatment.       

We will continue to contribute to autism research locally nationally and internationally – this will be evidenced through our work in CANDDID, which will include peer-reviewed publications and autism research in our annual conference programmes.

From 2022, our CANDDID annual stakeholder engagement events will support co-produced development of our research agenda.

By 2026, our work as a Trust and as host of CANDDID will mean that we are leading the training, education, and development of autism services across Cheshire and Merseyside.     We will support other health and care organisations to improve standards and services for all autistic people. This will include research, training and development work to reduce and ultimately eliminate premature morbidity and mortality from physical and mental health conditions.
