What is a Learning Disability Partnership Board?

Valuing People Paper Cover design

The government wrote a paper called"Valuing People, a New Strategy For The 21st Century (2001)". That paper told all local authorities to set up learning disability partnership boards.

The Partnership Board is a champion for people with learning disabilities.  We make sure that people with a learning disability and their family carers are part of everything we do.

Valuing People says the Partnership Board should help “people with learning disabilities to do those ordinary things, make use of mainstream services and be fully included in the local community”.

Valuing People Now - What next?

VP Now

In 2009 the government wrote another paper. It is called "Valuing People Now". The government gave the Partnership Boards more power and also expects more from us. We have to make a plan for making Valuing People Now happen in our city.

In December 2010 the government wrote a report about Learning Disability Partnership Boards and progress onValuing People Now - 0812 DoH - Valuing People Now

In March 2011 the regional Valuing People programmes came to an end.  You can read a message from our regional Valuing People team and a statement from the Department of Health:

How are we doing?

Once each year the Partnership Board writes a report on the work that we did the year before. Our report is sent to city's Joint Commissioning Board, which makes sure we have good health and social care services.

The national Valuing People Team sent us a list of questions to answer in our report.  Here is our 2010/11 report: BH - LDPB annual report 2010-11

 

Here is our report for 2009/10:

Who helps us do the work?

The Partnership Board has other groups of people that help with the work the Partnership Board wants to get done. We call these groups 'sub groups' if they do work for the Partnership Board, or 'Link Groups and Forums (Fora)' if they work with, but not for, the Partnership Board. Each group has its own page on this website.

Learning Disability Development Fund

LDDF Successful bids for 2013-14

LDDF reports for 2012-13

This is money the government gives to the council to help make Valuing People happen for everyone.  We use that money to pay for special projects.

Funding is being used to support the 6 key areas of the work plan of the Learning Disability Partnership Board for 2012/13. In particular:

Getting people ready for the next step and getting older – work to support people developing life skills, supporting people to move, increasing awareness of housing options

    • Information – work to provide accessible information or working with others to make information accessible
    • Making sure we include everyone – work that supports hard to reach groups to be represented
    • Being healthy and getting Health Checks –work that improves health or increases take up of health checks
    • People being safe in services and the community – work to promote people being safe in the community, involving people with learning disabilities in checking the quality of services
    • Making sure the rights of people with learning disabilities are protected – work to increase understanding of people’s rights as citizens including the Mental Capacity Act

The projects supported in 2011/12:

A report on these projects is contained in the meetings of the LDPB in April 2012
