Transforming Care (Must Knows)

Use your leadership role to ensure that this issue remains an urgent priority for your council and your local partners.

Councillor development

The Transforming Care programme is based on the assumption that children, young people and adults with a learning disability and/or autism with behaviours described as challenging have the right to live satisfying and valued lives, and to be treated with dignity and respect. They should have a home within their community, be able to develop and maintain relationships, and get the support they need for a life that is healthy, safe and rewarding.

The Local Government Association is one of six national delivery partners (along with NHS England, the Department of Health, the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services, the Care Quality Commission and Health Education England) supporting delivery of the programme through sector led improvement, including regional support to Transforming Care Partnerships.
