We consulted the public to seek their views and opinions concerning the development of a new learning disabilities strategy 2015 – 2019.
Your views and opinions have helped inform the development of the new strategy.
We have developed the strategy and this will undergo a period of public consultation prior to implementation in 2015.
It is time to rewrite our Learning Disabilities Strategy, our previous one was only until 2013, and there have been a lot of changes that we need to take into consideration, such as the Care Act 2014 , so with this in mind we are looking for your opinions and views as to what we should include in our new strategy which will be for 2015 - 2019
Why We Are Consulting
We not only have a legal duty to consult on the strategies that we write we also know that in order to get things right we need to listen to the real experts and thats you, the users, the parents, the carers, the workers, the general public.
We want this Health and Social Care Learning Disabilities Strategy to be a joint venture, so this is why we are carrying out various engagement activities so that more people can tell us what they think is important and what we should include in the strategy.
