Inclusion Gloucestershire Research



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.

Inclusion Gloucestershire are pleased to be involved with the LeDeR programme in the county.

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.

The panel looks at the LeDeR reviews to help ensure that service providers learn from each case and that examples of good practice are recognised.

As well as being involved in the QA panel, Inclusion Gloucestershire are also creating an accessible LeDeR bi-monthly bulletin.

This summarises the themes that were discussed at each meeting of the QA panel and signposts readers to useful information and support resources.

The LeDeR bi-monthly bulletins can be downloaded below.
