Members of the Suffolk Learning Disability Partnership have been working hard over the last 2 years to drive the Learning Disability Strategy. This is a joint Strategy between health & social care services in Suffolk and has the vision of 'People with learning disabilities live good, ordinary lives as part of their community with the right support, at the right time, from the right people.'

Talk to your Partnership Board is a way for delegates at Suffolk People First to ask questions, raise comments or concerns or highlight good practice directly to the Board meeting in May 2018.
