The Department of Health have told Health and Social Care          British Institute of Learning Disabilities

organisations that they must offer people with learning disablities
funding to allow them to have more personalised care and services.

We want to know how well this is working for Black Minority Ethnic
( BME) communities.

Story

We want you to tell us your stories.

We will be meeting and visiting groups at locations across the
country.

You can also contact us by phone or email.

We may find people from Black Minority Ethnic (BME) communities
are having the same experiences: we could all learn from these
experiences if we share our stories.
