Autism in the CJS

Our campaign mission is to improve criminal justice services for autistic adults and ensure they receive the appropriate treatment and support within the Criminal Justice System.

 

Desired Outcomes

 

  • Work in collaboration with Local and National government services to inform policy changes within the Criminal Justice System.  
  • Improve mental and physical health services offered to autistic offenders through collaboration and good working relationships with Healthcare and Mental Health providers. 
  • Improving support services for people whose autistic family members are in the Criminal Justice System through the use of lived experience workshops, online resources, and an online community where people can access help, when needed, from people who have been or are going through similar experiences.  
  • Increase awareness of challenges faced by autistic offenders within the Criminal Justice System.
