Have your say

PEOPLE are being asked to share their views on improving services for adults with learning disabilities.

The Draft Hampshire Learning Disability Plan for Adults is being published for everyone to comment on.

People with learning disabilities, families, carers and those with a particular interest in improving services for adults with learning disabilities are all being encouraged to make their views heard.

The plan has been developed by members of the Hampshire Learning Disability Partnership Board.

Councillor Anna McNair Scott, executive member for adult social care, said: ‘We want everyone with a learning disability to have the same rights, choices and opportunities in life as everyone else, so I would urge people to read the plan and make their views heard.’

Once the consultation closes the plan will be finalised and approved by the Hampshire Learning Disability Partnership Board, Hampshire County Council and Hampshire’s Five Clinical Commissioning groups. It will be launched next spring.

The plan will be available at hants.gov.uk/learningdisabilityplan-consultation or by calling 01962 847946.

Comments can be submitted until Friday, December 6.
