The Partnership Board is a big meeting for people with learning disabilities, carers, officers from health and social care and voluntary organisations. The Partnership Board is a place to talk about how to make services and support better for people with learning disabilities in Lincolnshire.
The Learning Disability Partnership Boards were set up to make sure that lots of different people, organisations and agencies work together to make change happen. Each Board needs to have people with learning disabilities on it. They should help people to have an equal voice.
Lots of people with different disabilities are talking about the same things across Lincolnshire We think the best way to help and make changes is for everybody to work together
A Joint Partnership is being set up to give people the chance to work together to make things better
