We need you! Autistic young people asked to share their views

The Council for Disabled Children (CDC) are working with NHS England to find out if autistic young people would benefit from receiving annual health checks.

CDC is seeking to hold focus groups with autistic young people, aged between 14 to 17, to understand their views on whether annual health checks would be beneficial, and how they feel about these.

The focus groups will be no more than 1 hour and all participants will receive remuneration in the form of a £10 voucher. The focus groups can take place either online or in person and would be facilitated by a trained member of CDC staff. We will be running the focus groups in September and October and will sign up groups on a first come first served basis.

Would your organisation be able to put forward a group of young people in this age group who would like to take part?

To sign up your group of young people, or if you have any further questions, please email participation@ncb.org.uk.
