2021 Midlands LeDeR Report – Learning from the lives and deaths of people with a learning disability and autistic people (published November 2022)
The regional report above is designed to supplement the national 2021 LeDeR report, which can be found here.
The introduction of regional reports allows for a more detailed look at some of the national report findings and can inform service priorities targeted by region. It is hoped that these regional reports will serve as a lens for enquiry and provide the regions with an opportunity to work with ICBs around opportunities for collective action to create opportunities for improvement.
Established in 2017 and funded by NHS England, LeDeR is a service improvement programme for people with a learning disability and autistic people.

Independent Report exploring ways of meeting the needs of carers in the Midlands (published 2017)
NHS England in the Midlands facilitated a project which saw a local carers network collect and analyse carers’ experiences through their own stories. The aim of the project was to identify if improvements across health and social care, both locally and nationally, could be identified to better support carers’ needs.
The network, a group of carers and health and social care professionals from across Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, came together during 2016/17. The stories were captured and analysed by Staffordshire University who produced this report detailing the findings. All of the recommendations in the report have been coproduced with health and social care professionals and carers.
The outcome of the project was presented at the Commitment to Carers: The Carers’ Voice Conference held on 25 May 2017 and the report and recommendations have been shared with local commissioners, providers and carers in order to generate a better understanding of the needs of carers.
A commitment has been made by the Chairs of the Telford & Wrekin Carers’ Partnership Board and the Shropshire Carers’ Partnership Boards to revisit these recommendations again in 12 months’ time to review progress.
