Merton Council

Services for people with learning disabilities


Merton Council is currently embarking on an ambitious engagement programme with people who have learning disabilities, their families, carers and the professionals who support them.

We are re-evaluating the services we offer and buy for people with learning disabilities. As part of this process, we are reviewing what people do during the day – including centres run by the Council, services purchased from care providers and activities in the community.

As everyone knows, there has been a lot of disruption to services due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are following Government guidelines to open up our services fully as soon as we can and we will let you know when anything changes.

We now want to improve your services and offer you the best range of community options and choices that build on your strengths in a meaningful way, and that are relevant to you and the people you care about.

For that to happen, we need your help. We invite you to tell us what you think directly or through your family, carer or professional support. We would like to know what your views are. We want everyone to have a voice and a say in what benefits them directly.

Consultation start date 17 May 2021
Consultation end date 31 July 2021
