LeDeR is short for an NHS programme called ‘Learning from lives and deaths – People with a learning disability and autistic people’.
The LeDeR programme looks to learn from the lives and deaths of people with a Learning Disability or Autism, using this knowledge to improve services and reduce health inequalities. Health inequalities are unfair differences that are seen when someone receives healthcare.
Two members of staff, who are Experts by Experience, sit on the LeDeR Quality Assurance (QA) panel to ensure that the voices of those with lived experiences are heard.
As well as being involved in the QA panel, Inclusion Gloucestershire are also creating an accessible LeDeR bi-monthly newsletter and other Easy Read information resources.

The Community Learning Disabilities Team Memory Assessment Pathway (MAP)
It is common for people with Down’s Syndrome to develop Dementia. In Gloucestershire the Community Learning Disability Team (CLDT) have a Memory Assessment Process (which can also be called a pathway). This is for adults with Down’s Syndrome (from the age of 30) and any adult with a Learning Disability who has possible memory issues.
Working with the CLDT we have coproduced an Easy Read leaflet to help explain more about the Memory Assessment Process and how it can help people.
This explains what Aspiration Pneumonia is, the signs of Aspiration, things that put you at risk of Pneumonia or Aspiration Pneumonia and importantly where to get help.
