Worker to help people with autism in Cambridgeshire

Services to help adults with autism in Cambridgeshire are being boosted by a new council post.

The county council has joined forces with Cambridgeshire charity Red2Green and the National Autistic Society to appoint a development worker.

The new officer will develop a programme to provide services and support to people with a spectrum of needs arising from autism.

The worker will raise awareness of autism among the public.

They will also help people with autism "take control of their lives".

Council commissioning manager Jean Clark said: "The development worker post we have funded will be key to identifying the level of need in the county and planning improvements for adults with autism."
