Learning Disability: Communications Tools
If you have a learning disability, there are a number of tools which you can download for free below to improve your experience of going to your GP or using another health service. You may also find some helpful information on the CHCP Wellbeing Service webpage by clicking here.
In 2015 NHS England published Building the Right Support. This plan described how community services and inpatient services can support people with mental health conditions, learning disabilities and autism.
Following the publication, 48 Transforming Care Partnerships (TCPs) were developed throughout England. Each TCP identified ways that their local services could be improved so that people with mental health conditions, learning disabilities and autism can be supported to live close to their families and that they are cared for and supported by staff with the right skills.
We are part of The Humber TCP and our vision is “…improving safe care and treatment to make sure that children, young people and adults with a learning disability and/or autism have the same opportunities as anyone else to live satisfying and valued lives and are treated with dignity and respect”.
The Humber TCP includes:
- NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group
- NHS East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group
- NHS North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group
- Hull City Council
- East Riding of Yorkshire Council
- North East Lincolnshire Council
- Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust
- Probation Services
- NHS England (North); and
- people across the local learning disability community
Our local plan is called Transforming Care for People with Learning Disabilities. We have also produced an Easy Read version Transforming Care Partnership Easy read version. In August 2016, further information was published about how we are progressing against the report. You can read that information here.

2019 Carers Survey
We talked to carers of people with learning disabilities at the Differently Abled event in February 2019 about their experiences, training or support needs and how they would know if their loved one was receiving good care. Click here to see the survey. Some key issues identified by the carers we spoke to included specialist dental services waiting times and need for greater support/training for grandparent carers who often provide respite care for young adult family members with learning disabilities.
Humber TCP People newsletter
The TCP publishes a newsletter called “TCP People”. It features news and developments across the Humber TCP area which make a difference to the lives of children, young people and adults with learning disabilities.
