Residents are being asked to take part in a consultation about how to improve services for children, young people and adults with learning disabilities in north Wales.

Councils across north Wales are working together with Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board to develop a regional plan for learning disability services. The plan will look at how health and social care services can work better together and focus on the areas people say are important to them: having something to do; having a good place to live; having the right support through changes in life; friends and relationships; being healthy; and, being safe. The plan is being developed along with people with learning disabilities, parents, carers and organisations who provide care and support.

Neil Ayling, the Project Lead in North Wales and Chief Officer, Social Services at Flintshire County Council, said: “We want all people with learning disabilities to have a better quality life; living locally where they feel ‘safe and well’, where they are valued and included in their communities and have access to effective personal support that promotes independence, choice and control.

“I want to encourage everyone to take part in the consultation to help us achieve this vision together.”

The consultation will be open until Friday 20 July 2018.
