Valuing People Now needs lots of groups to work together to make it happen. Cumbria has a Learning Disability Partnership Board that makes decisions about local services and support for people with learning disabilities and their families.
The members hope to:
Give people a good life with chances to work, study and enjoy leisure and social activities
Let people speak up about what they want from their life. (If you need support to do this, you should be able to get it.)
Support people to have greater control over their life and their person centred plan
Get the healthcare they need and the support they need to live a healthy life
Support people to have a choice about where they live and who they live with
