This Statistics Release provides national figures supplied by local authorities in Scotland for adults with learning disabilities.
The statistics in this publication are a result of ‘The same as you?’ review of services for people with learning disabilities, published in May 2000.2 The review proposed 29 recommendations for developing learning disability services and set out a programme for change over 10 years.
This is the report that was written about all of the information collected by the local authorities in the 2011 collection. Please note that the 2011 release has been updated in 2013; previous versions of the main report which appeared on this page should no longer be used. Changes have been made to Table 16 (page 36), but totals and percentages have not been affected. Annexes A and B remain unchanged. This includes the national and local authority annex tables.
This statistics release publishes information on adults with learning disabilities known to Scottish local authorities. This data collection and publication is sometimes referred to as ‘eSAY’ which stands for ‘electronic Same as You’, referring to the role of these statistics in monitoring the implementation of ‘The same of you?’. Please see the background section for more information on the current policy context, including the Scottish Government’s new learning disability strategy ‘The keys to life’.
The Short Breaks Fund represents a substantial investment by the Scottish Government in the development of short breaks’ provision. Scottish Government, Shared Care Scotland and the National Carer Organisations group are keen to make sure that there is a legacy from this investment, not simply in the form of additional or new short break services, but through better knowledge about what works well in short break services, and about what carers and those they care for need and value.
