Learning disability and autism
We are committed to transforming care to make our health and care services better and support people with learning disabilities and/or autism to live in the community with the care they need close to home. Within Coventry and Warwickshire, our partner organisation Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust (CWPT) supports people with diagnosis of a learning disability and/or autism and have lots of useful information and resources on their website. For the CWPT learning disability resource repository, which includes a range of useful documents and resources including information about annual health checks, health passports and reasonable adjustments, click here.
CWPT have also developed Dimensions, a free online tool providing self-care information to support adults, children and young people. Click here to access Dimensions and a range of information and advice resources which have been co-produced for neurodivergent people and those who support them.
The learning from deaths of people with a learning disability (LeDeR) programme was set up as a national programme to look at why people are dying and what we can do to change services locally and nationally to improve the health of people with a learning disability and reduce health inequalities.
Our LeDeR reports can be viewed in the Document Library.
