The Kent Learning Disability Partnership Board agrees and checks that the changes and improvements around the Government White Paper Valuing People (March 2001) and Valuing People Now (January 2009) are happening in Kent. This is currently measured by the Joint Health and Social Care Self-Assessment Framework, which looks at how well our services are being run.
The Board meets four times a year and members include people with learning disabilities, carers, voluntary sector and senior people from the main public services who make decisions.
There are 2 Co-chairs of the Board – an elected member of Kent County Council and a person with a learning disability.
The Kent Learning Disability Partnership Board also links with the Health and Wellbeing Board and the Safeguarding Board in Kent.
