As an alliance we hold shared beliefs and values relating to the individual potential of people on the autism spectrum, our expectations for them are high and we believe that:
People with autism will always continue to develop skills and strategies and we can demonstrate positive outcomes for the people we support
People with autism have significant strengths and can use these to learn and develop skills allowing them to participate as independent and valued citizens, enjoying equal rights and opportunities
A flexible and personalised approach is necessary to support the development of individual skills
Through working alongside people with autism, effective strategies can be developed that enable them to contribute to and be consulted on all aspects of their lives
Consultation through listening to people who use the service, and their representatives is key to effective evolving services
We work hard to ensure that the voice of people with autism, and their families is heard
We work in partnership with people with autism, their families, commissioners and other organisations to increase understanding and achieve best outcomes.
We strive to ensure that the services we provide meet the individual needs of the people and achieve the best outcomes and value.
We work to build an evidence base around best practice and take this into account in designing and delivering our own services.
