  • Learning Disability Partnership Boards have now reported annually on their work for two years. 
  • These reports give a valuable perspective of work around the country.  They show that partnership boards are working to improve services and they show many examples of good practice.
  • This document sets out a template for Partnership Board Annual reports in 2011/12 summarising their work in the year to March 2012. 


  • In the Valuing People Now summary report (DH 2010) for 2009/10 the Care Services Minister said the report gave clear information so that local people can see what progress has been made and improve services for people with learning disabilities. 
  • All 152 partnership boards completed the report. This showed that partnership boards wanted to improve services everywhere.  There were many examples of best practice. 
  • Good practice examples were in the summary report. They showed how people’s lives could improve and how efficiencies could be made.
