Day Opportunities for Adults with a Learning
Disability and/or Autism.
“As with our Whole Life Disability offer, we want to engage with as many service users, families and carers as possible, so we can design services that really make a difference to people’s lives, helps them achieve the independence they have told us they want, and prevents the need for long-term reliance on social care services.
The way we support people in the future needs to be about ability, not disability, about focussing on what people can do and building on these strengths so that they can live full and independent lives for as long as possible.”
