About the Learning Disability Partnership Board

 

The Learning Disability Partnership Board for Herefordshire meets four times a year to discuss the work that is going on to help people with learning disabilities. It also provides a voice for those with disabilities to help design services.

We talk about one topic at each meeting. Click on a highlighted topic to find out more about the topics we have discussed. The four topics for this year are:

Learning Disability Strategy

The Learning Disability Strategy 2018 to 2028 sets out the long term commissioning plans of Herefordshire Council and Herefordshire Clinical Commissioning Group with and on behalf of people with a learning disability and their family carers.

To keep progressing the strategy we have created an implementation plan that we continually update. View the latest update below:

Bill of Rights

A Bill of Rights is a list of important things that helps a person to live their life as they want to.

If you feel you are getting treated unfairly see your carer, support worker or someone you trust. The Bill of Rights might help you explain why you are not being treated fairly.

LeDeR

The Learning Disability Mortality Review Programme, known as LeDeR, is funded by NHS England.

It is trying to improve the care and medical treatment and to help reduce the deaths of people with a learning disability.
