Over the past eighteen months, the learning disability sector has been coming together to develop a framework and guidance document to help guide and improve commissioning.

The document will be launched on the 5 March, with interactive sessions to bring the document to life and to break it down into concrete steps we can take as a sector.

This was a free event, and gave a brilliant opportunity to be there at the start of something that can revolutionise our services and liberate those we support to be at the centre of their care and support.
