Issue details

Community Opportunities Framework for People with a Learning Disability

Creating a Community Opportunities Framework is one of the solutions in our approach to modernising Learning Disability Day Opportunities services following an independent consultation (Big Conversation) as part of the Recovery and Reset Programme.

People with a learning disability including parents and carers made it clear that whilst Merton’s day services are very good quality and well regarded, many expressed a lot of interest for more choice of community based activities.
