Draft Learning Disability Statement of Intent (Plan) – 2015-2018 Consultation

Warwickshire County Council are gathering your views on the Draft Learning Disability Statement of Intent 2015- 2018.  

 

 THIS CONSULTATION HAS NOW CLOSED

Whats the new Learning Disability Plan about?

We want to improve the lives of people with a learning disability. We will do this by supporting people to be more independent, have healthier lives and have more choice and control. People told us they wanted a plan that would have a positive impact on their way of life, one that was realistic, could be easily understood and be measured. We all have different aspects to our life that contribute to having a happy and fulfilled life. We have tried to write our plan to reflect this.

There are five key areas in the plan:

  • My Home Life– People with learning disabilities have a home of their own. A safe and secure place where their needs can be met by skilled support staff when needed. People with learning disabilities want to have more independence.
  • My Work Life– People with a learning disability want job opportunities, and to be able to make a valued contribution to the local work force either through paid employment, voluntary work or work experience. People with a learning disability want to engage in meaningful day time activities.
  • My Family Life – We want to support carers and make sure they have fulfilled lives.
  • My Lifestyle – We want people with a learning disability to be well and healthy. We want people with a learning disability to have equal access to health care and health promotion services and to receive reasonable adjustments to achieve this
  • My Social Life – People with a learning disability have told us that they want to make friends and have relationships.
