Learning Disability and Autism

This County Durham study will work collaboratively with the learning disability community to explore the experiences of people living with a learning disability and/or autism (LD&/A), their families and caregivers, as well as the perspectives of professionals delivering specialist and non-specialist services in County Durham.


The study will support the identification of gaps and opportunities in service quality and provision, and determine future needs, for improved and better coordinated services that ensure they “get the right support to live the life they want in their local community” as the UK government's Building the Right Support plan seeks to do.
