The NAS Adult Autism Support Service will be moving to Cambridgeshire County Council from 1st June. Here is a message from Joseph Simon:
“We are writing to everyone who has used or worked with the Cambridgeshire Adult Autism Support Service to let you know that there will be a change from 1 June. The service we provide will not change, but the service is being taken in house by Cambridgeshire County Council, as the National Autistic Society has decided not to continue to manage the service when the current contract ends on 31 May.
We, Anna Thomas and Dr Joseph Simon, the current Autism Support Managers, will continue to provide the service as our posts are being transferred to the council. Once all the new arrangements are in place, the service will be reviewed to make sure it’s working as effectively as possible to support autistic adults, but the council do not expect there to be significant changes.
The details for contacting the service will change from 1 June. After that date, please check the following sources for the new details:
- Customer Care Contact Centre for Cambridgeshire County Council Adult Social Care at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0345 0455202
- Adults and Autism Team via e-mail AAT@cambridgeshire.gov.uk or on 01480 373220
- National Autistic Society Cambridge Branch website at https://www.nascambridge.org.uk or on its helpline: 07920 150407
We are very pleased that we will continue to provide this essential service to autistic adults in the county. “
