Tuesday 5th February 2013 6.30 pm to 9.00 pm
Clapham Centre, Lambeth College, 45 Clapham Common Southside, London SW4 9BL
Presentation by Jo Brooks, Head of Autism Advisory Service, Wandsworth
“The Undiscovered Workforce” – work and autistic spectrum disorders
and Frank Innes will talk about the Gourmet Café training kitchen
Followed by a discussion panel with different organisations and people with autistic spectrum disorders so we can hear about different experiences and explore how work (paid or unpaid) can benefit well-being in adult life.
We will be making a video on the night to collect people’s views on what they would like provided for people with autism in Lambeth – this will be viewed by the LB of Lambeth Autism Strategy Group who are planning what can be done to improve the lives of people with autistic spectrum disorders.
You can have your views recorded in a private video box – this is for individuals with ASDs and/or Parents and Carers. As we want to keep to a maximum of 5 minutes per person, it is suggested that you plan what you might want to say in advance, possibly answering the following questions:
1 Do you take part in paid or unpaid employment, and what is it?
2 What activities in your daily life are important to you, and how do they help you lead a happy and well balanced life?
3 What things have been helpful to you in your education or training?
4 What things in your life have been unhelpful and caused you problems?
5 What would you like to be provided in Lambeth for you to lead a fulfilling and rewarding life?
It is a great opportunity for you to give your views to the people who are planning services in Lambeth, so I hope you can take part in this production. If you do not want to be seen, you can just have your voice recorded, and you do not need to give your name, unless you want to, and you can even have someone else read out your views if you don’t want to be recorded.
