The same as you? A review of services for people with learning disabilities

This review began by looking at services, especially in social and healthcare, and their relationship with education, housing, employment and other areas. However, its focus changed to include people’s lifestyles. That is what matters. Services are there to support people in their daily lives. The Learning Disability Review has succeeded in involving many of those with an interest, especially those who use services and their carers, at different points in the journey. The focus of the report is consistent with existing policies on community care.
