Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how people perceive, communicate and interact with others. Between 8,500 and 11,000 people with Autism live in Northamptonshire.

This report examines Autism prevalence and projections in Northamptonshire for:

  • children
  • young people
    and
  • adults

It explores population characteristics and how people with Autism interact with local and national Autism services, quality and outcomes for people with Autism and a review of national policies, recommendations, and evidence of what works when providing appropriate and good quality services to and for Autistic people. There is also a summary of the current national policies and recommendations along with some local recommendations.

This can be read alongside the recently published national Autism strategy which sets out the ambitions of the national government and actions for local government, the NHS, and other public institutions on how to improve the lives of autistic people over the next five years. The NHS Long Term Plan outlines six priority areas of action (and associated actions) to improve the health, longevity and quality of life of autistic people and people with learning disabilities.

Sexual Health is fundamental to the overall health and well-being of individuals, couples and families, and to the social and economic development of communities.

The ability of individuals to ensure good sexual health and well-being depends on:

  • the accessibility to comprehensive, good quality information
  • knowledge about the risks and adverse consequences of unprotected sexual activity
  • access to sexual health services and health promotion

Improving sexual and reproductive health is a public health priority which affects the entire population. Poor sexual health can have not only physical but mental health implications. Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and unintended pregnancies can have long-lasting and costly impacts on both individuals and wider society.

This report presents the findings of a Sexual Health Needs Assessment (SHNA) conducted by North Northamptonshire and West Northamptonshire Public Health and Health Intelligence teams between January and October 2023.
