People’s Board meeting summary 20/09/18
Septembers People’s Board meeting focused on the Think LD Campaign.
This campaign was set up to help raise awareness of people with learning difficulties as they have a life expectancy of less than 20 years of the average person.
The campaign is to remind people to think about people with learning difficulties and to remind when doing pieces of work how to include and remember people with learning difficulties in this. The campaign is currently working on reminding people and spreading awareness of annual health checks across the district.
Updated on carers strategy was also given. Many different groups of carers recently have been consulted to gather their experiences and views. These are currently being looked through to help shape the new version of the strategy.
