Draft Adult Learning Disability Strategy for South Ayrshire

The South Ayrshire Community Health Partnership (CHP) which includes the Council, NHS and partners in the Third and independent sectors has developed an ambitious three-year strategy (2013-2016) to underpin our approach to supporting people with learning disabilities. The strategy is based on the strengths and assets of individuals and local communities in South Ayrshire. Our strategic vision is that:

“South Ayrshire is a place which supports people with learning disabilities to build healthy and fulfilling lives.”

Development of the strategy has been highly participative, drawing on the views of individuals, families, communities and partner organisations. A series of focus groups and consultation events were held with stakeholders and service users. The views expressed and the actual experiences of service users and carers have informed the content of our strategy. We have also produced an Easy Read document to accompany the strategy.

The strategy focuses on the key outcomes that we want to achieve in South Ayrshire and demonstrates how these relate to the wider outcomes contained in our Single Outcome Agreement (SOA) and national policy. It provides an assessment of local needs and outlines the approaches we will take to deliver outcomes over the next three years.

We would like to hear as many views as possible on the emerging strategy and action plan. Please have a look through the draft strategy and let us know what you think by completing the short online survey at the link below.

The survey must be completed by Friday 20th September 2013.
