Telford & Wrekin Council want to provide quality support in a personalised way so that people with a Learning Disability, their families and carers, can receive the assistance they need to in a way that enhances their independence and enables them to lead meaningful, valued lives within their own communities. Note this Consultation was due to end on 14th April 2020 but due to Covid19 the time has been extended.

They want people with learning disabilities to:

  • live happy, healthy, safe and independent lives
  • be respected and have choice and control over decisions that affect them,
  • live their lives as active members of their community
  • access employment
  • have access to the right services.

It is important for them to understand what care and support people with Learning Disabilities need to live independently in their community.

It will enable them to develop a local Learning Disability Strategy which will help them deliver our responsibilities.

The following legislation and guidelines are important:

  • The Care Act 2014
  • Children and Families Act 2014
  • Human Rights Act, 1998
  • Mental Capacity Act 2005
  • Mental Health Act 2007
  • Autism Act 2009
  • Transforming Care Programme (TCP)
  • Think Local Act Personal.

You can tell Telford & Wrekin Council your views in a variety of ways

For adults with learning disabilities they will:

  • be holding face to face sessions supported by taking part between 30 March 2020 and 9 April 2020 and/or
  • offer an easy read paper questionnaire.

If you have any questions in the meantime please contact [email protected].

For families and carers we will be holding some face to face sessions: 

Note: Due to the current coronavirus situation the face to face sessions planned as part of the engagement into the future of care for adults with learning disabilities in Telford and Wrekin have been postponed. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you but we will be re-arranging the sessions when we are able to. The engagement period will also be extended accordingly.

Views on Care for Adults with Learning Disabilities

A wide-ranging engagement has been launched by Telford & Wrekin Council to shape the future of care for adults with learning disabilities and their families.

Telford & Wrekin Council understands the need to ensure that adults with learning disabilities have a say in what they are offered. The council wants to ensure that advice, information, care and support is aspirational, modern and meaningful for adults with learning disabilities. 

As part of this, they are asking you to think beyond the obvious and help them shape the future during a six week engagement. 

They want to know what is important to you, what works well and what you aspire to. 

To ensure the best outcome, Telford & Wrekin Council need you to help them by taking part in the engagement and letting them know how you see the future.

Councillor Andy Burford, Cabinet Member for Health and Social Care, said: “We want people with a learning disability, their families and carers to receive the assistance they need in a way that enhances their independence and enables them to lead meaningful, valued lives in their own communities. 

“We want to understand what adults with learning disabilities need to live as independently as possible with the right support in place. 

“Adults with learning disabilities should have the opportunity to live happy, healthy, safe and independent lives, be respected and have choice and control over their decisions, including getting out and about and going to work. 

“We want as many of you as possible to give us your feedback so we can then develop a local Adults with Learning Disability Strategy which will help us deliver our responsibilities as well as meeting local needs.” 

You can take part in the engagement from Tuesday, 25 February, by visiting: www.telford.gov.uk/ld 

The website also features a range of information and an easy to use survey.

The engagement runs until 9 am on Monday, 14 April 2020
