Kent County Council have released new plans for a ‘Lifespan Pathway’, helping individuals transition from Disabled Children Services to Adult Services from April 3rd 2017.
The new services illustrate there will no longer be seperate adult services for Learning Disabilities & Physical Disability. Meaning, individuals with both needs at any age will get the correct and personalised care with less hassle.
This is only one of many changes promoted by the KCC to better the care for service users.
KCC have also released a document to help you understand the changes the new plan will entail. If you would like to know more about the changes, check the document in the link below.
