This guide provides background information about autism and aims to assist those working in the housing-related areas of local authorities to understand autism in order to best support people who may be applying for housing, and in considering their housing needs.

The guidance aims to be a useful and practical resource for housing officers who may come into contact with people with autism and/or their families applying for social housing or for any of the various grants available through local authorities.
