What is a Partnership Board
Learning Disability Partnership Boards were set up by all local authorities following the publication of Valuing People in 2001. This was updated and Valuing People Now was published in 2009 followed by Valuing Employment Now in 2010.
Partnership Boards make sure that Valuing People Now and Valuing Employment Now as well as local plans happen for people with learning disabilities.
They make sure that everyone works together to plan and develop services that people with learning disabilities want and need.
They also make sure that people with learning disabilities have more choice and control over their lives and are fully included in the planning of services and in their local communities.
The Learning Disability Partnership Board in Reading is facilitated by Talkback Reading.
The next meeting is on Tuesday 6th March 2018 from 2pm-4pm in Elevate Conference Room, Reading Central Library, Abbey Square, Reading, RG1 3BQ.
