The ‘So what, what next?’ project
Supporting people with a learning disability, autism or both to use their skills and interests to play a part in their community
The ‘So what, what next?’ project is part of the Transforming Care programme of work, which aims to improve services and support for people with a learning disability, autism or both who may display behaviour that challenges. A key aim is to support people to move out of specialist hospitals and into the community.
This project was designed by the Transforming Care empowerment steering group. Members of the steering group are people with a learning disability or autism, or family carers, with lived experience of long stays in hospital settings. The steering group is a part of the national Transforming Care programme and is supported by the Local Government Association (LGA), one of the national delivery partners for the Transforming Care programme.
