Building the right support for people with a learning disability and autistic people is the name of a new action plan from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC). Here is a summary of the plan and a link to the full document:
People with a learning disability and people with autism should have the right support in place to live an ordinary life and fulfil their aspirations, in their own home. ‘Building the right support’ is the government’s policy to achieve this ambition by: strengthening community support; reducing the overall reliance on specialist inpatient care in mental health hospitals; and improving the experiences of people with a learning disability and people with autism across public services such as health, social care, education, employment, housing and justice. This action plan brings together, in one place, the commitments that have been made by different organisations to realise these aims. It aims to make further and faster progress, and drive long-term change for people with a learning disability and people with autism.
