Learning Disability Engagement Platform

Learning Disability Engagement Platform for Families:

Your Opportunity to Make Change

Call all families with lived experience of Learning Disability

The Patient and Client Council have begun engagement with a group of families whose loved ones have a learning disability. This group, which represents all 5 Trust areas in Northern Ireland, has been meeting since August 2021, and has been involved in giving family perspective to a Services Remobilising Framework being prepared by the Public Health Agency, with the aim of safely scaling up Learning Disability services, which have been restricted since the pandemic began.

This group are established as a Learning Disability Engagement Platform for Families, facilitated by PCC, and we want to reach out to a wider group of families with lived experience of Learning Disability to join them. The Engagement Platform will discuss and determine their priorities for areas of work. They are in the process of mapping what those areas of work will be. In the first instance this will be continuing involvement in the rebuild of services, further to the work with the PHA, and developing knowledge and awareness of the right ways and mechanisms, within health and social care, to influence and bring about change and improvement across services for Learning Disability.

Learning Disability Engagement Platform for individuals:

Your Opportunity to Make Change

Calling all those who have a learning disability and use services

The Patient and Client Council want to give you the chance to tell us your ideas about how YOU want to be supported and how you think health and social care services can be better for YOU.

There are different things to do with Learning Disability services that you might want to talk to us about. Our staff are experienced in working alongside YOU to support and make sure YOU HAVE YOUR SAY.

If YOU would like to join this group, or you support individuals or family members with Learning Disability who would want to take part in this group, click here to register and we will be in contact.
