Consultation on services for adults with autistic spectrum conditionsPosted on 6th January 2011 by David Botibol
There is a consultation opportunity for those adults with autistic spectrum conditions to pass on their views about needs and local services. An online questionnaire is available on the city council’s consultation portal at: http://consult.brighton-hove.gov.uk/public/nhs/pct/ascsurvey .
The questionnaire is quite wide-ranging and includes questions about ASpire, ASSERT, Autism Sussex and Rookery (Hove). I hope that a lot of people do express their views through this survey, and that we get to see published some interesting analysis of the responses.
Happy New Year, y’all!

Impetus PoliciesPosted on 7th April 2010 by David Botibol
Impetus Volunteer PolicyPosted on 12th March 2010 by David Botibol
Impetus has for some time had a Volunteer Policy. It relies upon the same Grievance Procedure, Disciplinary Procedure and Capability Procedure as were written for staff. Staff are governed by employment relations law, whereas volunteers are not. To keep up with changes in the law, the Grievance Procedure and Disciplinary Procedure need changing.
Architecture comes to MarketPosted on 30th August 2009 by David Botibol
Those who picked up on the Architecture/Asperger/Brunswick/Regency link theme in my last post may be interested to rejoin the trail in October. It visits the Old Market, a nearby 1828 listed building beautifully restored in 1999 as a performance venue.
On 7th October the Regency Society has scheduled a lecture there on the architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh and speculates on the possibility that Mackintosh may have had Asperger’s. See http://www.theoldmarket.co.uk/events_09_oct.php#7.
The Regency Society does explore further afield, too, and a few days earlier on 4th October joins with other local societies on a coach from Brighton and Hove to visit Dorney Court and Eton College.
ASpire in the ArchitecturePosted on 22nd August 2009 by David Botibol
You can visit free of charge lots of interesting and beautiful buildings buildings that usually charge for entry or are closed to the public. There are many guided tours that you need to book for, and some visits that you needn’t book.
Neighbourhood Care Scheme – Sponsored Something or otherPosted on 28th January 2009 by David Botibol
I heard yesterday that someone is doing a sponsored walk or run or something to raise money for the Neighbourhood Care Scheme. Unfortunately the details weren’t to hand, so I couldn’t sign up to it. It sounds like something a lot of us might like to support. Please don’t be shy! If you’re seeking sponsorship, potential sponsors need to know who you are, what the event is, how the payments will be related to your efforts, and how to register their support.
Wouldn’t this blog be a good place to share the information?
