Learning disabilities services for users and carers
Hampshire Learning Disability Partnership Board
Valuing People is the Government’s plan for people with a learning disability. The plan said that local councils should set up Learning Disability Partnership Boards in each area.
The Partnership Board brings together people from social services and health services, people with a learning disability, family carers, people from housing, education and other organisations.
The Hampshire Learning Disability Partnership Board meets regularly to talk about opportunities and support for people with a learning disability.
See the Hampshire Learning Disability Partnership Board website
Local Implementation Groups (LIGs)
Local Implementation Groups are made up of key people who can make change happen. They are committed to working together to make things better for people with a learning disability. Chairs from each LIG tell the Hampshire Learning Disability Partnership Board about what is important locally.
People with a learning disability and their family carers are included on these groups. The group meets regularly to talk about important issues in their area.
Hampshire has five Local Implementation Groups. Each group covers a different area of Hampshire and is colour coded on the Hampshire Learning Disability Partnership Board website to make it easier to recognise:
- New Forest - Yellow LIG
- Havant & East Hampshire - Green LIG
- Eastleigh & Test Valley - Orange LIG
- Winchester, Gosport & Fareham - Purple LIG
- Hart & Rushmoor, Basingstoke & Deane - Blue LIG
