Providing useful information for people with learning disabilities, their carers and all health professionals

New information for people with learning disabilities about the transforming care work!

A new booklet by the National Forum of people with Learning Disabilities and the National Valuing Families Forum

There is a new information booklet that the Forums have been working on together.

It is called ‘Hospitals are not homes’ and you can find it here:

The booklet is to help people work together on the Transforming Care work.

The Transforming Care work is about better care and support for people with learning disabilities and/or autism. The work started after the abuse of people at Winterbourne View.

We have made the booklet to help people know about the work and to help people check on the work that is happening in their local area.

We think it is really important that people with learning disabilities and people with autism and their families can be part of the work. The booklet should help people know:

  • What should be happening
  • Who to speak to
  • What questions they can ask
