Learning Disability MPS 2018
This Market Position Statement (MPS) is aimed at both current and potential providers of Learning Disability Services who are potentially thinking about operating within Rutland. Individuals included in the scope of this report are children, young people and adults of all ages with Learning Disabilities (LD) and /or Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and their families/carers. This includes those with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities.
It is intended to give an insight into the needs and aspirations of individuals within this group and is based on current commissioning trends, future population growth, anticipated demand and commissioning intentions over the next 3-5 years. It is part of a suite of documents that provide the key information and statistics on needs, demand and trends for the county.
The purpose of this document is to provide useful information for providers so that they can tailor their business objectives and to stimulate the creation of innovative care solutions. In this way, any future gaps in services can be met and ensure quality improvements are made to service delivery across the County.
Services in the future in Rutland should:
• Support prevention and early intervention so that people can remain or gain independence and move away from support or on to less intensive support.
• Encourage personal and community resilience.
• Offer short term interventions where appropriate.
• Be flexible and person centred and developed with service users and carers.
• Identify and achieve outcomes for service users and carers.
• Be developed in partnership with the Council and other commissioners of services and with other providers to identify best practice and achieve value for money
• Be supported using strength based approaches
• Make full use of community resources
The MPS may be subject to change dependent on the refreshed local plan
