“Together we can make a difference”

“Change will happen,

because we are working together.”

The Learning Disability Partnership Board brings together lots

of different people:  

Social Services, health services, people with learning disabilities, family carers, people from housing, education and

other organisations.  They are all working together to make sure that things get better for people with learning disabilities in Poole.

The Partnership Board meets every two months to talk about the

big issues.  We also have nine action groups that meet to talk about the everyday issues.  These action groups are:

1. Carers

2. Choice and Control

3. Keeping Safe

4. Finance

5. Relationships

6. Health

7. Housing

8. Work and Education

9. Communication for all

change will happen, because we are working together action group

Our Partnership Board was set up, because of “Valuing People”.

Valuing People is the government's plan for making better lives for people with learning disabilities, their families and carers.
