Job coach set to support adults with autism in the borough

Adults with autism are set to receive support from a job coach as part of a strategy approved by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead cabinet on Thursday.

Initially running for one year, the role will be funded by NHS Berkshire, and will help improve the life opportunities for autistic adults supported by the council; of which there are more than 80.

The strategy, which was created following a consultation with key stakeholders, has a series of quality outcomes it hopes to achieve including ensuring adults with autism are satisfied with local services.

Cllr David Coppinger, cabinet member for adult services, health and sustainability, said it looks at 'the whole picture' and how the council can help autistic adults lead 'fuller lives'.
