Based on the findings of a two and half year research programme undertaken by the Norah Fry Research Centre, this timely report examines the strategic changes that are occurring within learning disability services as a result of the 2001 Valuing People White Paper. It offers evidence-based examples of good practice for all those involved in planning strategic changes to, or implementing change within, services for people with learning disabilities. Key features of the report include: an assessment of local strategic planning in English learning disability services, with advice on what makes a good strategy; a review of Learning Disability Partnership Boards, with advice on practical issues of service user and carer involvement and how Boards can influence local services; an evaluation of the role of commissioners in the context of changing services; examples of good practice in relation to person-centred planning, housing options and day services modernisation. The report is essential reading for managers and commissioners of learning disability services and all those involved in Learning Disability Partnership Boards. It will also be valuable to anyone with an interest in services for people with learning disabilities.
