We see both Operational Manager posts consolidating current service improvements made by our Learning Disability – Integrated Community Team and advancing specific Action Plans identified by our local Care Planning Group forums with key Partners including the ongoing development of our recently introduced assertive outreach model and shared focus in areas such as individualised rights and responsibilities, housing, employability, education, transitions, health and wellbeing considerations for people experiencing a range of Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities and Autism within our community.
