What is a Partnership Board and what does it do?
Learning Disability Partnership Boards were set up in 2001 following the introduction of the Government Report Valuing People. Their job is to make sure that different people, organisations and agencies work together to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities.
Board members include: people with a learning disability, parents and carers, representatives from health, social care and other learning disability providers.
The job of Lincolnshire’s Partnership Board is:
- To make sure that people with a learning disability have the same chances as everybody else
- To make sure that people with a learning disability have a voice
- To make sure that everyone works together
- To make sure that services meet the needs of people with a learning disability
- To make sure that everyone is included in planning services
- To make sure that the Council and the Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) buy services that people want and need
- To have a say about what the council and health want to do before it happens
- To make sure that the money that is spent on services for people with a learning disability and family carers is spent properly and on things that are good quality
The next meeting is on:
