About Me


Roseann Connolly I am optimistic that autistic people of all ages, and their carers living in Hounslow will be able to get the services they need to develop and lead satisfying and rewarding lives free from stigma. I don't know how long this will take. We will work with health and social care professionals to develop our mutual understanding and knowledge of what needs to be done. We will not wait passively for services to be delivered to us but will take an active part in the development and where appropriate delivery of those services.
