Help shape future of learning disability services in Worcestershire
CARERS and residents are invited to attend an event on Thursday to help shape the future of learning disability services in Worcestershire.
The engagement project was launched in November and is seeking the views of service users, carers and residents on the services currently provided and of how they could change to better meet needs against a backdrop of budget pressures.
Councillor Philip Gretton, county council's cabinet member for adult social care, said: "The BIG Learning Disability Conversation is designed to give people the chance to shape relevant service in the future, and also to help us as the county council make decisions which are well informed.
“Despite obvious financial pressures we are as committed as ever to providing a range of learning disability services which are well used and well valued and which contribute to improving the quality of life of the individual and their carers/families and we hope the views which come out of this engagement project will help us achieve this further."
Another event is taking place at The Old Glove Factory, 13A Lowesmoor, Worcester, on Tuesday, February 5 at noon.
