Learning Difficulties Partnership Board

The Learning Difficulties Partnership Board (LDPB) is a group of people who make sure the work of valuing people happens in South Gloucestershire.

Valuing People: ‘A New Strategy for Learning Disability for the 21st Century’, is the first White Paper for 30 years with the aim of improving the lives of people with learning difficulties, their families and carers. The learning difficulties development fund (LDDF) is money to help make valuing people happen.

The Learning Difficulties Partnership Board Co-chairperson

The Learning Difficulties Partnership Board Co-chairperson is employed by South Gloucestershire Department for Children, Adults and Health to get other people involved in the work of the LDPB and Valuing People Now.

The Co-chairpersons role also involves making sure:

  • Information is accessible to people with learning difficulties
  • Money given to Learning Difficulties Development Fund projects makes positive changes for people with learning difficulties
  • People with learning difficulties have the chance to have their say about the services and support available to them
  • People with additional and complex needs and people from minority communities have the same opportunities as everyone else

The board’s members include people with learning difficulties, carers, representatives from different South Gloucestershire Council departments, South Gloucestershire Primary Care Trust and voluntary and independent organisations.

Please see the documents below for more information about the LDPB including our latest annual report, newsletter and minutes of the last meeting. ‘Who we are and what we do’ is an easy read handbook in four sections explaining more about the LDPB.
