This practice enquiry, which ran from December 2009 to July 2010, was the third strand of a SCIE project sponsored by the Department of Health (DH), in order to inform and support their strategy for adults with ASC. The key question that led to the practice enquiry was: How far [do] current services and strategies support or hinder people with ASC to live independently and to what extent [do] current processes exclude people with ASC by denying social care support to enable them to access services and mainstream provision? (Commissioning Brief, September 2009) The evaluation sought to: invite and consider a range of views about the provision of services to support independent living for adults with ASC, from people with ASC receiving services, those who have had difficulty accessing support, their carers and other stakeholders identify views on issues of access to assessment processes identify views on what assessments achieve for people with ASC and their carers and on provision of service identify the policy and practice challenges which may affect access to support and experience of provision of services identify areas of 'good practice' as perceived by people who use services and carers and other stakeholders in access to and experience of provision of services provide recommendations that may inform future good practice in the provision of services for adults with ASC.
