Practice Guidance on Developing a Commissioning Strategy for People with a Learning Disability

This practice guidance was developed for the Learning Disability Advisory to complement the statutory guidance; The Commissioning Framework Guidance and Good Practice, May 2010 designed for social care. The statutory guidance is generic guidance covering all client groups. This LDIAG practice guidance provides greater detail on commissioning services for adults with a learning disability. It does not specifically address services for children although it does encourage agencies to ensure that they make themselves aware of the future likely demand for services by monitoring children coming through the system. There is no reason why further guidance on commissioning services for children with disabilities cannot be produced in the future.
