Learning Disability Strategic Plan 2019-2022

We want to know what is important to people with a learning disability in the East Riding to allow them to grow and develop as individuals, with the ability to make their own choices in order to lead fulfilling lives, so that they can enjoy the best health and well-being possible.

There are some questions for you to answer in this short survey.  Your answers will help us know how to make life better for people with learning disabilities.  No one will know who you are when you answer the questions.
