Reference Groups

Autism reference group

This group is for autistic adults living in the Leeds City Council area. They meet once every three months at the Lovell Autism Hub to raise topics concerning autistic people locally. Their opinions will be heard by key decision-making people in Leeds e.g. the NHS.

Autistic adults in Leeds are welcome to attend. Two to three people at each meeting are nominated to go to the Autism Partnership Board.


Carers’ reference group

This is a group for parents/carers of autistic adults in Leeds. They meet once every three months at the Leeds Civic Hall to discuss what issues they are facing.

As with the Autism reference group, they feed into the Autism Partnership Board meetings, with two to three people at each meeting nominated to attend.
