Background 

Over the last year Welsh Government policy has expanded its focus on autism to include other Neurodevelopmental conditions (namely ADHD and Tourettes) with the aim of improving awareness and achieving parity in service provision.

We are looking to achieve lasting improvements to neurodevelopmental conditions services through an ambitious programme of reform - a new 'national improvement programme for neurodevelopmental conditions'.   

This programme will support the development of timely and consistent all-age neurodevelopmental services and will include much needed additional advice and support services for parents and carers. Improvement in ND services can only be achieved if there is cross sector and co-production including government, statutory services, people with lived experience, the third sector and the wider community. 

We have established a Neurodevelopmental Conditions Ministerial Advisory Group to assist Ministers and Deputy Ministers with the direction, implementation and evaluation of neurodevelopmental conditions services. We are looking for membership of the Group to include representation from a cross section of policy, service and delivery areas as well as neurodivergent people, their families and carers from across Wales. 

Reason for appointment

The aim of the Neurodevelopmental Conditions Ministerial Advisory Group (NDC MAG) is to provide strategic leadership as an independent Advisory Board.

Initially, meetings will be held virtually, however, it is hoped that if circumstances allow, future meetings may take place in person in locations across Wales (agreed in advance at the NDC MAG meetings).  

Remuneration and time commitment

Unpaid, but members are entitled to reimbursement of travel and other reasonable expenses.

There will be 4 meetings a year, held quarterly. Potential additional sub-group meetings may be arranged to undertake specific discussions/activities.  

It is the policy of the Welsh Government to promote and integrate equality of opportunity into all aspects of its business including appointments to public bodies and advisory groups.  Applications are welcomed and encouraged from all groups and individuals and we ensure that no eligible candidate for public office receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of age, disability, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, or pregnancy and maternity. The principles of fair and open competition will apply and appointments will be made on merit.
