What is the Learning Disability Partnership Board (LDPB)?

The Learning Disability Partnership Board (LDPB) consists of a multi-agency membership including carers and self-advocates. They meet to decide what needs to happen to make the lives of people with a learning disability better. Some of the agencies represented include:

  • NHS East Riding of Yorkshire
  • elected members
  • adult education
  • local colleges
  • safe communities
  • voluntary sector
  • East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

The key function of the East Riding Learning Disability Partnership Board is to ensure a consistent approach to service improvement and access for people with a learning disability and their families/carers across all key agencies and partners.

The Partnership Board meets on a quarterly basis although extraordinary meetings are called to address specific issues or challenges as and when required.

How frequent are the LDPB meetings?

The Learning Disability Partnership Board (LDPB) meets every 2 months for a full meeting, however, there are regular sub-group meetings throughout the year which feedback to the main board.  

Are the LDPB agendas and minutes available?

Sorry, but there are no agendas and minutes currently available.

How do I get involved in the Learning Disability Partnership Board?

Inclusion North is working with East Riding of Yorkshire Council to set up a new Learning Disability Partnership Board.

Lots of different people can be part of the Partnership Board. We would really like to hear from local people with a learning disability and family carers. 

Rebecca from Inclusion North is arranging a meeting in December 2019 to get local people together. At the meeting, Rebecca will share information about the Learning Disability Partnership Board. You can then decide if you would like to get involved in the Partnership Board in the East Riding.

You can contact Rebecca by telephone on 07496 229661 or via email at:

Please contact Rebecca as soon as possible.

What are the Learning Disability and Autism strategies?

Every child, young person and adult with a learning disability and/or autism has the right to the same opportunities as anyone else to live satisfying and valued lives, and to be treated with dignity and respect. 

We want them to have a home in their community, be able to develop and maintain relationships and get the support they need to live healthy, safe and rewarding lives.
