Standards for Community Learning Disability Services published

We are pleased to announce that we have published the First Edition of Standards for Community Learning Disability Services in October 2019. In light of the Transforming Care agenda and the move away from inpatient treatment, towards better community services we feel this is a timely and important development to keep our work relevant to the services we support.

The standards are available here and more information on the project will be available soon.
