The Learning Disabilities Partnership Board was set up to help improve the lives of people with a learning disability and their carers or families. We want to involve and work with people who have a learning disability and their carers to improve the services they receive in the London Borough of Barnet.
The Board will achieve this by monitoring, developing and promoting opportunities and choices that improve the quality of life of people with a learning disability aged 18 and above.
We have a workplan for the Partnership Board for 2013 - 2016 which we are currently working towards.
Dates of meetings 2016
