The Learning Disability Advisory Group's remit is to provide advice to Welsh Government to inform learning disability policy development. In order to do this, the group decided to focus on the following workstreams:

  • Sustainable Social Services
  • Health inequalities and social determinants of health
  • Transforming care for people with a learning disability and challenging behaviour (a response to the Winterbourne View scandal)
  • Advocacy
  • Social integration and inclusion.

Sub-groups have been set up to take forward the work on health inequalities, transforming care and advocacy. These sub-groups will include and involve people from outside the LDAG who have relevant knowledge and expertise. The sub-groups will report back to the LDAG on a regular basis.
