Consultation: Learning disability and autism training for health and care staff

The Department of Health and Social Care has launched a consultation on the training which would become a legal requirement for all care and health professionals regularly coming into contact with people with learning disabilities and autism.

The government wants to know how it can make sure that health and social care staff have the right training to understand the needs of people with a learning disability and autistic people, and make reasonable adjustments to support them.

The consultation considers issues around the training and development staff need to better support people with a learning disability or autistic people.

We want to know what people think about our proposals on:

  • the planned content of the training
  • how the training should be delivered
  • how to involve people with a learning disability or autistic people in training
  • how we can mandate, monitor and evaluate the impact of training

The consultation will be of particular interest to:

  • people with a learning disability or autistic people
  • the families and carers of people with a learning disability or autistic people
  • patient groups
  • providers of health and social care services
