The Building the right support action plan in July 2022 outlined a number of cross agency commitments. NHS England, along with partners, committed to publishing a range of guidance and information for commissioners to support them to commission for people’s lives and not just a service.

This guide contributes to delivering this commitment. It draws together a number of resources and provides a one stop shop for professionals who put in place services and approaches to support children, young people and adults who have a learning disability or who are autistic to lead healthier, happier, longer lives.
