The Health and Social Care Board (HSCB) is leading a new regional project to improve Adult Learning Disability Services across Northern Ireland.



The HSCB is engaging with those adults who currently use learning disability services, carers, health and social care staff and voluntary and community organisations to find out what is working well, what needs to be improved and what we need to start doing.

Three surveys have been developed to support these discussions (i) for service users (ii) for carers (iii) for HSC staff. 

Let them know what you think about the services and your experiences.

The surveys will close on 11 September, 2019. 



Peter Livingstone, who has a learning disability and is an Inclusion Consultant with a local charity, is urging people to make their voices heard.

“It is very important that people like me, with a learning disability, complete the survey,” he said.

“Have your say. This is about our services and we need to tell people what we like, what we don’t like and what we need.”

Marie Roulston, Director of Social Care and Children at the HSCB said, “We are delighted to be working together with adults with learning disabilities, their carers and staff to co-produce a new service model.



“Informed by feedback from those who avail and deliver learning disability services we hope to produce a report on this work early in 2020.

She added, “Your voice matters to us so please take the time to provide your views.”
