CCGs celebrate World Autism Awareness Week

South Lincolnshire and South West Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) will be marking World Autism Awareness Week, which runs from 1-7 April, with a coffee morning for staff.

Encompassing World Autism Awareness Day on 2 April, an internationally recognised event, World Autism Awareness Week is an opportunity for people across the UK to take part in activities to raise money and awareness for the National Autistic Society.

“A lot has been done to raise awareness about autism but there’s a lot still to be done and I’m really pleased that staff across the two CCGs, including our Experts by Experience, are doing their bit and having some fun at the same time,” comments Dr Kevin Hill, Chair of South Lincolnshire CCG.

As well as providing the opportunity to enjoy a coffee and some cake, the CCGs’ coffee morning will also give an invaluable opportunity to talk about autism and find out more about the lifelong developmental disability that affects how autistic people perceive the world and interact with others.
