Valuing People is all about you!

The Kent Learning Disability Partnership Board (KLDPB) has groups across Kent where people with learning disabilities, their carers and families can talk about the things that are important to them in their lives.  The Board wants to know what is good about your life and what you want to change or improve, and support people to take action.  Everyone is welcome to take part – just click on the map to find a group in your area and come along to the next event – it might just change your life!
 
The KLDPB was set up following the Government White Paper Valuing People Now (Jan 2009) which wants all people with learning disabilities to have the right to lead their lives like any others, with the same chances and responsibilities

The KLDPB looks at the main issues affecting the lives of people with learning disabilities.  It does this through the following Delivery Groups - Becoming an Adult, Good Health, Keeping Safe, What I Do, Where I Live. If you would like to get involved in one of these Delivery Groups please contact joanne.cunningham@kent.gov.uk. 

The Board encourages individuals, groups and organisations across Kent to get involved in exciting projects that are important to people with learning disabilities.  It could be as simple as making friends or maybe you want to influenceGovernment Policy - the Board has seen both happen in Kent as well as many other activities.  To find out more, take a look around the website at the different ways you could be involved.
