Help us plan future services for adults with learning disabilities

25 August 2022

People living in Richmond upon Thames are invited to share their views on the housing, care and support services available for adults with learning disabilities, including: residential care, outreach, supported living and emergency placements.

The survey will help inform future changes to these services, which the Council hopes will:

  • Improve the quality of life for residents with a learning disability
  • Increase the choice and control that people have over their own life and decisions
  • Ensure all people with a learning disability can make a positive contribution to their local community and be good neighbours
  • Delay and reduce the admission of people with a learning disability into long term residential or hospital care
  • Ensure all people with a learning disability are safeguarded from abuse, neglect and harm
  • Ensure service users and their families are satisfied with the services that they receive

Anyone is welcome to take part in the survey, including people with learning disabilities, their families or friends, carers, and local groups. The survey asks questions such as 'what do you think is most important about the care and support people receive to help them live independently?'. It also lists a draft version of the key requirements for its future housing, care and support services, and invites residents to comment on this.Complete the survey online or request a paper copy by calling 0781 612 6691 or by emailing LDBigSurvey@richmond.gov.uk
