About the Consortium
The Greater Manchester Autism Consortium was formed by the 10 Social Services Departments of Greater Manchester (Bolton, Bury, Manchester, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford and Wigan) in 1998.
In 2017 the Consortium was extended to include the 10 Greater Manchester Clinical Commissioning Groups. The Greater Manchester Autism Consortium funds and steers The National Autistic Society's (NAS) Greater Manchester Autism Consortium Project which carries out a variety of tasks set by the Consortium Steering group.
The chair of the Consortium is currently Mark Warren, Director of Adult Social Care (DASS) / Managing Director Community Health and Social Care
