Overview

 

This is our new learning disability strategy (our Plan).

This Strategy is the plan for how leaders in Wandsworth are going to spend money on making the lives of people with a learning disability better.

This plan is for years from 2020 to 2025.

Vision

A vision is a goal for how we want things to be for people with a learning disability in Wandsworth.

 In Wandsworth we want to spend money in the best way to have:

  • Services that help people with a learning disability and their carers
  • Services that help people with a learning disability have good health and stay well
  • Services that support people with a learning disability to be independent and make their own choices
  • Services that are planned by health teams and social care teams together
 
Why do we need a plan?
 
We need a plan to do lots of things:
 
  • To make it easier for people with a learning disability to know what services will be available
  • To make sure our services are right for people with a learning disability in Wandsworth
  • We want to make sure we are better at knowing which services we need and which we dont

What does our Plan say?

Our Plan says a lot of things:

  1. Where People Live - Housing and Support. We want to make sure we have the right services in Wandsworth for everyone with a learning disability. This includes where people live
  2. What People Do – Employment and Day Opportunities. We want to help all people with a learning disability to be as independent as possible. This could include learning new skills or getting a job
  3. Moving to Adulthood – Transitions. We want to help young people with a learning disability who are leaving school to plan for the future
  4. Keeping People Well – Improving Health Services. We want to make sure that there are services which help people with a learning disability have good health and stay well
  5. Increasing Life Opportunities – Choice and Control. We want to help people with a learning disability to make choices about how they spend the money that they need
