What is the Learning Disability Transforming Care Partnership plan?

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.

In partnership with Hull CCG (clinical commissioning group), Hull City Council and North East Lincolnshire CCG and Council, the East Riding of Yorkshire Council has developed a joint plan Transforming Care for People with Learning Disabilities that seeks to reshape services to meet local needs.
