Kent and Medway Learning Disability Community of Practice is a group set up by local people who care about people with learning disabilities experiencing good health and wellbeing, and good health services.
This has been a venture spearheaded by Canterbury Christchurch University, East Kent Hospitals Universities NHS Foundation Trust and the English Centre for Practice Development with support from local statutory and third sector organisations.
The Community of Practice works toward the eradication of health inequalities by supporting carers, care
workers and all professionals to:-
– be person centred
– provide the best quality care and support
– improve equality and access
In June 2013 an event including 60 local people identified what the Community of Practice was for. There are two versions of the Community of Practice Purpose, click on the pictures below for your preferred version.
The purpose has recently been reviewed and new volunteers have joined the Community of Practice Steering group, representing Kent Community Healthcare Foundation Trust and third sector organisations. Further details of this will be available here soon.
