Learning disabilities in England annual report
The Centre for Disabilities Research has produced two annual reports in the past, in 2005 and 2008. The first new report, covers 2010, and brings together information on the characteristics of people with learning disabilities, the services and supports they use and their carers.
This information is collected by several government departments, reflecting their different responsibilities. Mostly is publicly available, though in a wide range of different places. The aim of the report is to provide, in one place, a concise summary of all the information and links to the key data collections where more detail can usually be found.
The report has sections on health, education, adult social care, employment, benefits and carers. It highlights progress being made on the implementation of key health and social care policies,
