About The Learning Disability Partnership Board
The Learning Disability Partnership Board is a group of people who work together.
They want to improve services for people with learning disabilities in Brighton & Hove.
Members of the Partnership Board come from lots of different places such as:
- people in charge of services at the council
- people with learning disabilities
- parents and carers
- Carer’s Centre
- Speak Out
- the NHS
- Job Centre
Before Partnership Board meetings Speak Out, Amaze, PaCC and Carer’s Centre talk to people with learning disabilities, parents and carers.
They ask them what they think are the good things and the bad things about the services and support they get.
They listen to their ideas about how to make things better.
They put these ideas into reports.
The reports help managers and other people in charge of services understand what changes they need to make.
The partnership board meet 4 times a year to talk about the reports.
People with learning disabilities give presentations to help members understand what the problems are.
Then all the members agree ways they can work together to make things better.
The partnership board check to see what things have changed.
They find out what has got better.
They look at what needs to improve
