Progressing a National Autism Strategy and Research Centre

The Albanese Labor Government will continue its commitment to leaving no one behind and holding no one back by progressing a National Autism Strategy and committing further funds to the Autism Cooperative Research Centre (CRC).

Minister for Social Services will today announce that a further $2 million in Commonwealth funds have been allocated to the Autism CRC to continue their important research and provide advice to support development of a National Autism Strategy.

An Oversight Council will be established for the Strategy, with its first meeting expected in March.
