Autism Bill becomes law

“Dear Member of Parliament,

I am writing to say thank you for your help with making legal history. The Autism Bill, the first disability-specific law in the UK, today passed its Third Reading in the Lords.

The National Autistic Society has been delighted by the overwhelming support shown by Parliamentarians from both Houses. The cross-party spirit with which all parties approached this has been commendable.

The Autism Act, and the Adult Autism Strategy, has the potential to make a real difference to people’s lives, and we will continue to campaign to make sure that delivers on its promise.

Once again, many thanks for your help in achieving this milestone for people with autism. Do not hesitate to contact me should you wish to discuss the implications of the Autism Act and forthcoming strategy.

Best wishes,
The National Autistic Society”
