Learning Disabilities Strategy
Find out about the strategy Worcestershire County Council follows to support people with learning disabilities.
A new Learning Disability Strategy has been launched with the aim of making Worcestershire a great place to live for people with Learning Disabilities.
It is designed to be a 'go-to guide' for all organisations and residents across the county, to get involved and to work together to make positive change to the lives of people with Learning Disabilities and their families.
The strategy has been produced by Worcestershire’s Learning Disability Partnership Board.
It has five key principles:
- Working Together
- Supporting Each Other
- Including Everyone
- Treating People Fairly
- Enabling Good Lives
The strategy sets out aims and actions within seven themed areas, focusing on housing, health, inclusive communities, purposeful days, key life transitions such as becoming an adult and moving into older adulthood, being safe and carer support.
The strategy is designed to be as accessible as possible, with jargon busters, explainers, Easy Read Photo Symbols, quotes, case studies and photos.
The Learning Disability Partnership Board is a partnership of stakeholders from across Worcestershire including people with Learning Disabilities, family carers, providers of services, and professionals from across health, social care and community services.
