Looking for Work

The Government wants to improve the employment rate of people with autism. This target is in Public Service Agreement 16. Public Service Agreements are targets the Government sets when it decides how much money it will spend. Public Service Agreement 16 was set in 2007 when the Government decided how much money to spend from 2008 to 2011.


The Government is now writing a plan to help more people with autism get jobs. The plan will also help people with a learning disability get jobs.


If you want to tell the Government what you think would help people with autism to get jobs, answer the five questions below and email your answers to LDEmploymentStrategy@dh.gsi.gov.uk by 11 March 2009.


The National Autistic Society would also like to read your answers to the questions. If you are happy for us to read your answers please also email them to policy@nas.org.uk


Here are the questions that the Government would like you to answer.


  1. Can you tell us about any projects or other things that have helped you get a job?
  2. Not many people with autism have a job. Why do you think this is?
  3. How can we help more people with autism believe that getting a job is a good idea?
  4. What changes need to be made that would help more people with autism get jobs?
  5. Is there anything else you would like to tell us about getting more people with autism jobs?

When you have answered the five questions, write your name and your contact details in case the Government wants to ask you some more questions about what you have said.


The Government will need to know:


  • *your name
  • *your organisation (if applicable)
  • *your email address or phone number.

By answering the five questions, you are saying that the Government can use your comments for their work. If you tell the Government about things that have happened to people you know, you should not use their real names. If you tell the Government about things that have happened to you, the Government will only use your name if you say they can.
