  • Celebrate World Autism Day with CLASS

    On Tuesday 2nd April, the Cambridge Lifespan Autism Spectrum Service (CLASS) will be launching the Chitra Sethia Autism Centre Library for service users and health and social care staff.
    Come along to the opening ceremony at 11am with Colette Turner, CPFT associate director of operations.
    The library aims to improve experience of the autism pathway, with information and resources for service users, families and carers. The CLASS team is raising awareness and helping CPFT staff gain skills to ensure people in the autism community are understood when they access all Trust services.
    The library launch is the result of months of planning and the hard work of Sue Hart, a volunteer at CPFT.
    Please contact:
    ClassClinic@cpft.nhs.uk
    for further information or drop in on the day to browse and enjoy some refreshments.
