Improving Lives Programme (Welsh Government)

Year of Publication: 

The Improving Lives Programme was established by the Welsh Government to review how well people with a learning disability are supported throughout their lives. The document contains a number of recommendations in Appendix 2.

This review began in February 2017. It reflects the voice of people with a learning disability as well as professional services and Welsh Government policy leads. A Senior Civil Servant and a project manager have been seconded to undertake this work. A desk top review of information was undertaken and then meetings were held with over 2,000 people. The team engaged with people with a learning disability, parents and carers and with existing groups, e.g., regional partnership boards, health boards, local authorities, communities of practice as well as the third and private sector groups and Commissioners in Wales.
