During 2021/22 NHS England has funded a variety of projects to support Integrated Care Systems in developing sensory friendly environments for autistic people. This document outlines the projects commissioned and draws them together into a cohesive resource pack for local health systems to use to support their autistic citizens.

This pack is intended to support the delivery of NHS Long-Term Plan commitments for autistic people and the further prevention of mental health crisis in children, young people and adults who are autistic (with or without an additional learning disability) and to support in addressing issues raised about un-sensory friendly environments impacting on poor quality care for autistic children and adults.

All elements of the resource pack have been co-produced with people with lived experience, family carers, and clinicians.
