LeDeR Learning Events 2021/2022

The Humber LeDeR Steering Group and the Transforming Care Programme have been working together to develop a series of virtual learning events, to understand what we can do better for people with a learning disability or autism. 

The first virtual event was held in November 2021 with many in attendance from around the Humber. These events allow the Transforming Care Programme to show how we are working with people who have a Learning Disability, their family and carers so that we can make things better.

Learning from lives and deaths – People with a learning disability and autistic people.

People with a learning disability often have poorer physical and mental health than other people and may face barriers to accessing health and care to keep them healthy. 

Too many people with a learning disability are dying earlier than they should, many from things which could have been treated or prevented.

LeDeR used to stand for the Learning from Deaths Review programme. Now we have changed the name to learning from lives and deaths – people with a learning disability and autistic people. 

For the first time LeDeR will review the lives and deaths of autistic adults who do not have a learning disability.

The LeDeR programme aims to 

  • Improve health and social care for people with a learning disability and autistic people.
  • Reduce health inequalities for people with a learning disability and autistic people. Health inequalities are unfair and preventable differences in health.
  • Stop more people from dying too soon by making care better.
