People with learning disabilities live good lives as part of their community, with the right support, at the right time, from the right people.

The Suffolk Joint Learning Disability Strategy was was created a long time ago, so we wanted to find out:

A smiling man with clipboard and a checklist with a tick.

What should stay the same?

Lady thinking with a question mark next to her.

One lady answering questions from another lady who is writing down the answers.

We needed a Suffolk Joint Learning Disability Strategy Refresh to ask these questions.

People sat around a table work together on a laptop.

We co-produced the Suffolk Joint Learning Disability Strategy Refresh with the wider Suffolk Learning Disability Partnership, consisting of family members, self-advocates, provider representatives, Adult Social Care and Health colleagues.

People sat round a table at a board meeting.

It was agreed that many parts of the strategy are still important.

My Home
Icon of a man with open arms inside a yellow circle.
My Life
Icon of a megaphone inside a red circle.
My Voice
Icon of a heart inside a blue circle.
My Health

We will have focus groups about these areas.

We will discuss ideas from the focus groups at the Suffolk Learning Disability Partnership Board.
