The report asks ICB members to support the LD & Autism plans


The Board considered the report of the Head of Commissioning (Mental Heal and Learning Disabilities) which advised that people with learning disabilities and autism form some of the most vulnerable people in the Borough and the report intended to provide members with an overview of the work for these specific client groups.


The Learning Disability and Autism Plans had been developed this year as a local Rochdale response to a GM LD plan and a separate GM Autism plan.


Both plans are for the period April 2020 to March 2021. GM require the LD plan to be supported at Locality Health & Wellbeing Boards and request that locality Chief Executives have sight of the plan. Members were asked to support the plans.


Alternatives considered:

No alternatives were presented within the report.



1.    That Learning Disability Plan as outlined for the Rochdale Borough be approved; 

2.    That authority be delegated to the Director of Strategic commissioning (DASS) and the Learning Disability Partnership Board for the oversight of the delivery plan.


Reasons for the decision:

The Greater Manchester Learning Disability Delivery Group requires all 10 GM localities to report on the learning disability plan to local executive bodies and gain support for the work undertaken.  


To ensure our citizens who have learning disabilities and, or, autism are supported to live fulfilling lives. 


To ensure compliance with the Greater Manchester Learning Disability plan. 


To provide members with an overview of the ongoing work to support people with autism in the borough
