ACT NOW Autism Campaigners Together 

ACT (Autism Campaigners Together) NOW are a core group of people passionate about the future and wellbeing of children and adults with an Autistic Spectrum Disorder in the UK. Following the hand over of 6,000 signatures received from families of children with autism and adults with autism to 10 Downing Street and the publication of the ACT NOW Impact Assessment Report the campaign has entered its second phase.

Phase two of our campaign is to ‘Record the Cuts!’  We want our supporters, in fact anyone who is living with autism, to record anything that you hear about any cuts happening in your area and to let us know about them.  We need to gather as much information as possible throughout the UK on cutbacks in local authorities and reductions in services for our children and adults.

The Cuts will affect Local Authorities (LAs) including County, Metropolitan
and Unitary Councils, Primary Care Trusts (PCT) and Health Authority

We are now looking for ACT NOW Area Co-ordinators. We would like to have as many Local Authorities and County Councils covered as we possibly can. The more information we can share with each other the more we will know just how much the cuts are going to impact on our lives. We are already aware that some LAs and Health Authorities have announced cuts. If we can add up all of the cuts that are taking place we could be in for a very BIG shock. It is likely that some families will have their lives affected by cuts being made in three, made by their LAs, PCTs and Health Authorities.
