Carers Week sees launch of two new guides
New Strategy for Learning Disability services
All learning Disability services and support for families are developed within an overarching strategy. It is really helpful to be aware of the strategy as it can strengthen any case you put forward for support.
We have worked with Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan Councils to produce a draft strategy for learning disability services over the coming 5 years, we have ensured that views of carers we have met have been taken into account.
The final version of the Strategy is about to be launched at an event on the 18th June. You are welcome to attend.
The venue is the Copthorne Hotel, early booking is advised.
