North East and Cumbria Learning Disability Network

The vision of our Network is:

We in the North East and Cumbria will strive to be the best part of England for people with learning disability to live.

The Network has representation from every Clinical Commissioning Group (CCGs), all healthcare providers and all local authorities in the region. The Network is managed by Judith Thompson.

The Network works collaboratively to:

  • identify and implement initiatives that make a real difference to the lives of people with learning disability
  • work closely with the Clinical Networks to ensure their initiatives consider the needs of people with learning disability
  • identify and share best practice
  • regularly engage with people with learning disability and with their carers to co-produce key initiatives.
