Forum for family carers of people with learning disabilities

Forum for family carers of people with learning disabilities Monday 3rd March 2.00 – 4.00pm Royal College of Psychiatrists, 21 Prescot Street, London, E1 8BB

The National Audit of Learning Disabilities (NALD) has carried out a small study in GPs, general hospitals and mental health hospitals to see if their project team could carry out a larger study to help these services improve the care they provide to people with learning disabilities.

The team wants to organise a focus group for carers/family of people with learning disabilities to hear what they think of the findings of this study and whether they have focussed on the main issues that are important for people.

This will help them to improve the study if they were to do it again on a larger scale.

Please see the invitation here for more information.

Each participant will be paid ahalf day session fee of £50 plus travel expenses.

What will it involve? All participants will be sent a short report presenting findings of the study, to read before the meeting. In the workshop, participants will be asked for their views on the findings. For example, how useful the information is and whether there is anything missing.

Who can participate? Family/friends of people with learning disabilities who have used GPs, acute and mental health hospitals. If the person is in fulltime care and family/friends are unable to attend, paid key workers are welcome to attend. There are 10 places available and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

If you are interested in participating, please contact Pamela Gallagher on: 020 3701 2698 or email: pgallagher@rcpsych.ac.uk
