Alan White: Lockdown – One Year On

As we approach the anniversary of the first Covid lockdown and reflect on the past 12 months, it is an opportunity to look back on all that we have achieved.

This has clearly been an intense and challenging time for us all. Many people have lost their lives, others have lost their livelihoods, and I want to extend my condolences to all those who have been affected in some way.

I would also like to recognise all those who have stepped up to support the Covid response, which has demonstrated all that is good about our county.

CCG Keyworker Consultation

SCVYS is working with local NHS services to think about whether having a Keyworker would help children and young people with a learning disability, autistic children and young people and their families.

Who is the survey for?

This survey is for children and young people aged 0-25 who are either autistic, living with a learning disability or both autistic and have a learning disability. Parents and carers can help to fill this in, but we want to know your own views.
