Learning Disabilities – Planning for the future

UNITE SOMERSET COUNTY COUNCIL

Need to keep the service “In-House”

At the moment Somerset County Council provides many of the services used by people with learning disabilities, and buys other services from independent organisations. The County Council provides about half the accommodation services people with learning disabilities use, and most of the services, such as day services, employment and short breaks. In February 2014 the Council will be making decisions about the best way to organise these services in the future. We would like to hear what you think, before we make these decisions.

At a meeting on the 11 September 2013, the Cabinet requested the consultation to help decide how the service will be managed in the future. The Council is exploring whether it should extend the amount of support delivered by other organisations, or keep the service as it is.
