Local Implementation Groups
The LIG (Local Implementation Group) is a forum for people with learning disabilities, carers and professionals who meet once a month for two hours (except in August) in their local community.
The forum is a co-produced Partnership, for adults living in Hampshire and those preparing for adulthood, to share information and advice about support and resources within their local area as well as influence service developments.
We welcome new faces and we want to ensure that the group remains current and covers a wide range of topics, ensuring we hear from as many voices as possible.
The aim of the LIGs are to improve experiences for people with learning disabilities, promote wellbeing, offers support to one another and networking opportunities.
Both local and national issues are discussed with opportunities to make a difference. Often, guest speakers will be invited to share information with the group and to allow partners of the group to share their views. The group continues to monitor the promises made within the LD plan review 2018: Hants-LDPlanReview2018.pdf
Representation from each LIG forms part of the countywide Learning Disability Partnership Board. It meets once every quarter and discusses topics that have been agreed as important by its members. Elected representatives from each LIG, the local authority, the CCG, advocacy and the County Council's Executive Member for Adult Social Care and Health form the Board membership.
Each group is colour coded to represent each area within the whole of Hampshire (see table below):
