Learning Disability and Forensic Services
Strategy for services for people with learning disabilities consultation. We have developed a strategy for our services for people with learning disabilities. A strategy helps us to make decisions and develop plans for improving our services. It will also help to explain our intentions to others and support any changes we make.
