Your Partnership meets four times a year to talk about the important things for people with learning disabilities and their family and carers. Its job is to make sure that things get better for people with learning disabilities by checking the promises in the LD plan.

We have a plan and a charter!

We worked together for 2 years to write the LD plan and it was finished in July 2014.

Since then, we have been checking what difference the plan has made.

LD Plan

We launched the LD Charter on 5th September 2018 (see below).

We launched the LD Plan Review for Adults 2018 on 28th November 2018.

There is an easy version of the LD plan review 2018.

Role of the Partnership

The Partnership shares information and speaks up for people with learning disabilities. It is for people who use services and for carers. We do our best to represent people who cannot speak for themselves.

The previous plan was not written by people with learning disabilities and some people did not know about it. We talked about a lot of important issues and thought it was time to rewrite a Plan because some things had changed.

We wanted the new Plan to be widely available to everyone. It was important to write about how people wanted to be supported and what things could make a difference in people’s lives.

In September 2018, we added an LD charter to our plan and have been reviewing the LD plan with a new LD plan review 2018 which was launched at the end of November 2018.
