Getting involved

Get involved in designing services

We are committed to listening and involving people who use local services and their carers can be involved in helping us to improve current services and to shape future services. You can do this by:


Participate in consultations and surveys. You can find any current consultations on our website.

There are various other ways you can get involved in discussion and decision making in the local health services through the Bedfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).

Bedfordshire Autism Voice (BAV) Partnership Network

The BAV is a new partnership arrangement in place of the previous Think Autism Partnership Board.

It is led, chaired, and run by autistic people for autistic people to discuss local issues and things that are important to them.

There are 3 BAV groups held once every 3 months. The local groups are held in North, mid and south central Bedfordshire in venues chosen by autistic people.

This is a great opportunity for you to get involved and make a real difference for autistic people in Bedfordshire.

To join your local group, or if you have any questions, please send a message to

Housing tenant groups
