Gloucestershire Learning Disability Partnership Board (LDPB)
What is the LDPB?
The Learning Disability Partnership Board is where everybody works together to make lives better for people with a Learning Disability in Gloucestershire. The board helps to bring out the voices, ideas and thoughts, of people with learning disabilities.
There are two co-chairs of the partnership board – an independent co-chair Jan Marriott and Tim Heaven from Inclusion Gloucestershire.
Date of our next meeting: Tuesday the 14 of June at 10.30am on Zoom.
Please email Tim or Emily for the agenda and Zoom link.
