The Local Government Association (LGA) and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS) are writing some guidance and want to hear from people with a learning disability, autism or both and family carers.
This is part of the Transforming Care work.
The guidance is to help make sure that people with a learning disability, autism or both who display behaviour that challenges get good quality care and support in the community.
They want the guidance to:
• Help commissioners and providers work together as partners.
• Help commissioners to make sure they are working with providers that have the right values and skills.
• Help commissioners to make sure good providers are available to people in their local area so that people don’t have to live a long way from family and friends.
• Help commissioners to know what good services and good quality care and support providers look like.
Here is the information with some questions for you to answer.
