The Government and leading organisations across the health and care system are committed to transforming care for people with learning disabilities and/or autism who have a mental illness or whose behaviour challenges services. 

Transforming care will mean that fewer people will need to go into hospital for their care. To do this we are making sure that services in the community are much better.

Derbyshire is home to one of the 48 Transforming Care Partnerships that have been set up across the country. This partnership brings together clinical commissioning groups and local authorities to work with people with a learning disability, autism or both and their families and carers to agree and deliver local plans for the programme.
