Place of publication:

People with learning disabilities or autism have consistently poorer outcomes in areas such as health, life expectancy and quality of life. This includes their access to paid employment, housing, friendship and social networks. Social care support can help to enable people to address the inequalities they face as a result of learning disabilities. This Strategic Briefing talks through policy, evidence and practice to help leaders' plan social care systems to even out these inequalities so that people with learning disabilities can live good lives. It is aimed at senior decision-makers working across Adults’ Services. (Edited publisher abstract)
