Overview

The whole life disability strategy is a set of principles and actions that will underpin the way the county council works with families, communities and partners to meet the needs of people with physical or learning disabilities, autism, and sensory impairments. 

Following on from our engagement on the first draft of the strategy, we have now reflected some comments and suggestions in the revised version. Our cabinet approved it on 21 June 2018.

The cabinet paper, revised strategy and appendices are all available.
