Hampshire Learning Disability Plan for Adults consultation

This consultation closed on 6 December 2013

About this Plan

In 2009 the Learning Disability Plan for Hampshire was published. Many good things have happened for people with a learning disability and their carers since the 2009 Plan, and some things have not changed.

It was clear from talking to people with a learning disability and their carers that a new plan was needed.

This new Plan has been written by the Hampshire Learning Disability Partnership Board. The Board is made up of the following members:

  • ten people with learning disabilities
  • five family carers
  • one senior officer from Adult Services
  • one senior officer from Health

Who this Plan is for

People with a learning disability created the photos for the Hampshire LD Plan for Adults. Many of the pictures are seen in the Plan. You will find others on the posters.


This Plan is for every adult with a learning disability even if they do not have support paid for by Adult Services.  

This Plan includes people with a learning disability who are from black and ethnic minorities.

This Plan includes all people with learning disabilities no matter how complex their needs are.

What we want to do

We want everyone with a learning disability to have the same rights, choices and opportunities in life as everyone else.

That is why we have written this plan.

We have written our Plan based on what we have been told and we will continue to listen and update the Plan.

We wanted to know what you thought of the plan

We asked you to have a look at the draft Plan. We also asked you to complete a questionnaire telling us what you thought of the Plan.

We also planned some events that you could go along to for more information or for help with the questionnaire.

What happens next?

We will look at what everyone has told us and make any changes that are needed. The Plan will be approved by the Hampshire Learning Disability Partnership Board, Hampshire County Council and Hampshire’s five Clinical Commissioning Groups.

It will be launched in the spring of 2014.
