Autism Act 2009
2009 CHAPTER 15
Section 4: Interpretation
30.Subsection (2) ensures that where a local authority or NHS body exercises its functions in relation to providing relevant services for adults with autistic spectrum conditions by arranging for those services to be provided by a third party (commonly referred to as “commissioning” services), those services fall within the scope of the Act in the same way as if they were being directly provided by the local authority or NHS body.
