What is a Partnership Board and what does it do?
The ‘Valuing People Now’ 2009 report said that Councils had to set up a Partnership Board.
This would have people from different organisations such as social services, health, advocacy, Connexions, Dudley Voices for Choice, housing, and leisure getting together with people with learning disabilities and family carers.
Their job is to put things in place to improve the lives of people with learning disabilities.
This means providing better services and helping communities to include people with learning disabilities so they can live like everyone else.
What is the job of the Partnership Board?
The job of Dudley’s Partnership Board is to:
- make sure that the things in ‘Valuing People Now’ happen
- make sure that services are suitable for everyone
- make sure that the Council and Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) buy services that people want and need
- make sure that everyone is included in planning services
- make sure everyone works together
