Learning disabilities project (Funded)

Reducing inequalities in care for people with learning disabilities

We are pleased to confirm that our ‘Reducing inequalities in care for people with learning disabilities’ project is now fully funded and we are starting to address the inequalities that contributed to people with learning disabilities being six times more likely to die from COVID-19.

Thank you to the members of our co-production steering group who we have been working with to discuss their pandemic experiences and to establish the themes to explore in more depth, from personal care to community support. Our next step is to capture people’s experiences on film to develop professional learning resources. We look forward to updating you with our progress and outcomes over the coming months.

We really appreciate the support of the charitable trusts and foundations that have kindly made this project possible.
