Learning Disabilities Strategy
Worcestershire County Council uses the Care Act 2014 to determine how we support adults of Worcestershire and their Carers.
Our learning disabilities strategy shows our ambition for services for people with learning disabilities in Worcestershire.
The Learning Disability Partnership Board have been keen to get everyone's input into Worcestershire's new Learning Disability Strategy.
The Board launched a short survey to get views of those with Learning Disabilities and their families, and wider Worcestershire residents. The results of the survey will help pull the new strategy together.
The Learning Disability Partnership Board are keen to get everyone's input into Worcestershire's new Learning Disability Strategy.
Due to launch in 2023, the strategy will help to set out what people with Learning Disabilities and their families in Worcestershire want and need to support them in their everyday lives.
We would like to thank everyone who responded to our survey earlier in 2022, and all those who have contributed to our workshops and discussion groups so far. The Partnership Board is now taking all the feedback received and bringing it together into the new strategy, which is due to be published in the spring.
Rachel Barrett, Lead Expert By Experience at Speakeasy N.O.W., said: “It’s great working together on the next Learning Disability Strategy. We are helping to change people’s lives. You can only do this by listening and working together with people with lived experience.”
Councillor Adrian Hardman, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, said: "We're really hopeful that the Learning Disability strategy will become a key part of how we can all work together to help make Worcestershire a great place to live for everyone”.
