Developing a better understanding of the support needs of people with a learning disability in order to pro-actively inform and stimulate the market to develop. Feedback from users would be helpful to inform us what support needs are currently not adequately addressed.

Our 0-19 weight management service will continue to operate. User/ resident insight would be helpful to help inform future projects that aim to tackle childhood obesity
