In the latest episode of the Workforce Insights podcast, Sharmeen Ziaudding speaks to Dan Wilkins and Juliana Ameh about their work at Wiltshire Council in adult social care.

Dan is the head of transformation and quality assurance for adults and has over 20 years' experience working with adults with learning disabilities and autism. Juliana is a social worker in the learning disability and autism team. Prior to qualifying as a social worker, she was a support worker for people with learning disabilities.

They talk about how things have changed for them and the adults they support since the Covid-19 pandemic began in 2020.

They talk about differences in services offered, how there is more demand for services and the increase in awareness around neurodivergence.

How can practitioners support adults with autism better? And how can local authorities support neurodivergent staff?

In the podcast, Dan recommends the book Made Possible by Saba Salman.

You can read about how Wiltshire Council is embedding co-production with disabled people in social care (mentioned in the episode) here.
