The Improving Health and Lives Learning Disabilities Observatory

30/07/2010

The Improving Health and Lives Learning Disabilities Observatory keeps watch on the health of people with learning disabilities and the health care they receive. They have a website that provides a lot of information, and they are doing a number of projects. The website is designed to be used by service users as well as their care givers, and offers different options for ease of accessibility including a simple video presentation outlining the content of each page.

There are discussion areas for service users and their care givers who may have specific shared interests to talk about, as The Improving Health and Lives Learning Disabilities Observatory feel that people may also want to share documents, details of up-coming meetings or useful internet links, and they want to encourage all service users as well as people who concentrate on people with learning disabilities to join in. There is also a group for people with a learning disability tell The Improving Health and Lives Learning Disabilities Observatory what they would like the website to do, and for the supporters of people with a learning disability or profound and multiple disabilities to tell them how you would like the website to help you.
