Norfolk, Great Yarmouth and Waveney have launched a ‘Transforming Care’ partnership, aimed at developing the care and support available for people with learning disabilities, autism and challenging behaviour in the area over the next 3 years.
Transforming Care is a national initiative developed by the Local Government Association, NHS England and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services, to develop care plans and choice within the health and social care services they receive.
The Norfolk and Waveney Transforming Care partnership has developed a plan that is consistent with the national framework, ‘Building the right support’.
The partnership will work closely with all stakeholders to inform the design and delivery of the plan.
The Partnership consists of:
- People with learning disabilities, their carers and family members
- Commissioners of health and social care – Norfolk County Council and the 5 NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups in Norfolk, Great Yarmouth and Waveney
- Statutory and independent providers of services for people with learning disabilities
- Voluntary sector and support organisations
- Statutory sector stakeholders from Housing and Planning, Education and the Ministry of Justice
- NHS England, Local Government Association and Association of Directors of Adult Social Services
