Regional Implementation of the ASD Strategic Action Plan for Wales

Local Authorities are working on a Regional Basis to Implement the ASD Strategic Action Plan for Wales.This includes the development of regional forums, collaborative working between local authorities and health and the implementation of regional ASD projects.

ASD Regional Forums

South East Wales, Mid and West Wales and North Wales Regional Leads ASD forums have been developed and supported by the ASD Regional Support Team. These forums support the sharing of practice and developments at a regional level. The forums have also been a key arena for developing and implementing regionally funded ASD projects.


Examples of Collaborative Working

There are many examples of collaborative working across each region. Some examples of this forward thinking way of working include:

  • The initiation of a Pan Gwent steering group, which informs direction of work across all services in the Pan Gwent area.
  • Ynys Mon and Gwynedd Local Authorities pooling their grant funding monies to ensure maximum benefits.
  • Powys led a project delivering training in the ADOS and 3Di methods of assessment and diagnosis to thirty eight professionals from the seven counties in Mid and West Wales.
