Consultations and surveys Manchester Learning Disability Commissioning Strategy for Adults 16+ (2023 to 2028)

We want to understand what good quality services look like for people with a lived experience of a learning disability.  

If you’ve had experience or have needs, we’d love to hear from you: your comments will help us in the design of our Health and Social Care Commissioning Strategy for 2023 to 2028.   

Who we want to hear from  

  • Manchester residents aged 16 years of age and over who have a learning disability (you may also have other conditions including (for example) autism, mental health conditions, epilepsy)   
  • Carers of residents who are 16 years of age and over, with a learning disability. By carer we mean “informal family carer, relative or friend”.  

What we want to know  

What ‘good’ services look like across a range of services, and any improvements you would like to see in the future.  

The views of residents and their carers about some of the proposed priorities for Health and Social care in the next five years.   

Why we want to know this and what we will use the information for  

The comments and opinions we gather from you will be used to help us write a good quality commissioning plan (or strategy) for Manchester from 2023-2028. This is an important document that health and social care organisations will use to focus their time and resources, and to improve services for residents with a learning disability over the next five years.  

Your experience and comments are important to us: they’ll be used to help us review and make improvements to a range of services in the future. These will be in line with our local agenda “Better Outcomes, Better Lives”. This is focused on helping residents reach their goals and aspirations, and to become as independent as possible. 

This includes services such as:  

  • Outreach services (also known as home care or domiciliary care)  
  • Supported living services  
  • Short term care also known as “step up/step down provision”  
  • Short break services (also known as respite services)  
  • Residential and nursing care services  
  • Healthcare services like GP’s and Hospitals  
  • Services in the community like peer support and friendship groups
