Working together: Improving lives for people with a learning disability or autism who have or may offend

Come and meet with organisations from across the South West of England who work with people who have a learning disability or autism or both, and who have offended or are at risk of offending.   At our interactive event, you will learn more about the processes and responsibilities of different agencies, hear about what works and examples of best practice, and take part in discussions around some of the challenges of delivering good support to people at risk of entering the Criminal Justice system.

  • How do we identify barriers, share perceptions of risk and overcome the concerns in order to support people out of hospital or prison?

  • What are the frameworks for discharge or release, and who is responsible for what?

  • How can we support people with learning disabilities and/or autism who have committed offences stay in or move back into communities in ways that are safe for them and others?

This event is for Care Provider Organisations who support people with a learning disability and, or autism. It is jointly hosted and supported by Skills for Care, the Local Government Association and NHS England - Transforming Care support programme

Date: 27th February 2019; Time: 10.00am to 15.30pm; Venue: Taunton
