"I really welcome the local autism strategy, because having the voice of autistic people at the heart of the five-year strategy is vital. It is an important piece of work that I am really pleased to have been involved with. I think this should give us a real vision to extend equal opportunities to people with autism across the county."
Bill Borrett, Norfolk County Council, cabinet member and chair of Norfolk’s Health and Wellbeing Board
