Learning disability and autism strategy feedback

We would like to hear from people with learning disabilities and autism about your experiences with our services and the community on the island. Your feedback will help us to refresh our local strategies.

The Isle of Wight Autism Partnership Board and Learning Disability Partnership Group want to improve your lives, help you be heard, stay safe, and feel confident to be an active part of the community. They also want you to be involved in service planning.

The two previous strategies for learning disabilities and autism spectrum condition have finished. They are undergoing review against local needs and national policies. They are:

  • Living well with a learning disability on the Isle of Wight strategy (2018 – 2021)
  • Isle of Wight joint strategy for children, young people, and adults with Autism Spectrum Condition strategy (2014 -2019).

Our partners

To capture your feedback, we have produced a survey with our local partners:

  • Hampshire and Isle of Wight Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG)
  • People Matter IW
  • Healthwatch
  • Isle of Wight NHS Trust
  • Autism Inclusion Matters.
