Learning Disability Partnership Board (LDPB)
The role of the Dorset Learning Disability Partnership Board (LDPB) is to improve the lives of people with a learning disability who live in the Dorset County Council area, by:
- promoting their independence, choice, rights and inclusion
- making sure they are treated as equal citizens, with access to mainstream services such as health, housing, employment and education
- making sure outside bodies consult with the LDPB as their main source of information when planning and making decisions that affect the lives of people with a learning disability
The board meets every three months and is chaired by a carer, and co-chaired by an adult with a learning disability.
Review of the LDPB
The council would like a strong and influential LDPB. A review is currently underway to consider how the board can be organised and managed to be more effective.
The next LDPB meeting will be on 3 October 2019, and 5 December 2019, from 9.30am to 1pm in Dorchester (venues to be confirmed).
