Mental Health

Country of origin: UK

The Learning Disabilities Good Practice Project gives people who commission, design and deliver services a better understanding of how to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities.

Details of the services were collected by the National Valuing Families Forum and the National Forum for People with Learning Disabilities, as requested by Norman Lamb, Minister for Care and Support, in November 2012.

More than 80 examples were received, and 6 services were selected because they demonstrated important indicators of good practice. They are described in detail in the report.
