    News/Events Category: Employability

    The Buckland Review of Autism Employment published on 28 February 2024 sets out a vision for workplace culture changes to support autistic people to start and stay in work.

    Commissioned by Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Mel Stride and led by Sir Robert Buckland KC, the Review’s 19 recommendations for businesses and government include: 

    • Signing up for the Autistica Neurodiversity Employers Index to access guidance on designing inclusive processes and procedures
    • Encouraging career progression by developing packages of training focused on autistic staff
    • Improving recruitment by ensuring careers advisers can provide appropriate advice to autistic jobseekers
    • Supporting autistic people who are already in the workplace by producing “autism design guides” to create appropriate premises, furnishings and equipment
    • Working with software suppliers to develop IT systems that meet autistic people’s needs.

    The Buckland Review of Autism Employment was supported by charity Autistica and includes the views of hundreds of employers and autistic people.

    An Easy Read version of the report is available and further information can also be found in the press release on GOV.UK
