Sufficiency Strategy

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough are in the process of developing sufficiency statements for our service areas (Children in Care, Children with Disabilities and Complex Needs, Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, and Children and Families), and an overarching Commissioning Strategy across these areas. These documents are currently in draft and subject to internal governance, will be published here shortly. The existing strategies detailed above will become redundant once our 2021 strategies are published.
Please check back for updates.

Autism Strategy and Toolkit

The All Age Autism strategy was developed by PCC, CCC and the C&P CCG in partnership with local organisations, service user groups and parent carer forums; drawing on the knowledge and understanding of those with lived experience of autism. The development of this All Age Autism Strategy pulls together all of our autism workstreams across Children and Adults.
It also sets out our work to date; outlining the plans, ambitions and commitment to work together across Health, Social Care and Education to support people of all ages with autism including their families and carers.
The aim is for both Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to be autism friendly; where people with autism can live full, healthy and meaningful lives, within a society that accepts and understands them. This includes focusing on needs led services being person centred; providing care informed by an understanding of what matters to a person with autism and their family.
The strategy takes a whole life approach; with the right support, children, young people & adults with autism can live happy, healthy and independent lives within their own community; it is therefore vital to develop an All Age Strategy, focusing on what works for both children, young people and adults.

Autism Toolkit
The Autism Toolkit has been created as part of the All Age Autism Strategy Development. It is a self assessment tool which encourages and supports organisations to become more accessible to children, young people and adults with autism; or other neurodiverse conditions. In doing so, we hope to increase the accessibility of organisations and businesses across Peterborough.
The Autism Toolkit will also be used across Peterborough City Council (PCC) and the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group (C&P CCG) when commissioning services and as part of provider contract management.
Please feel free to complete the Autism Toolkit or share with organisations and business across Peterborough. Organisations who have completed the toolkit and looking to increase neurodiverse accessibility can notify Children’s Commissioning ( and be included within our Autism Accessible Directory.
