New Guide Launched to Help Improve Commissioning of Services for People Labelled ‘Challenging’

Published: 20/12/11

A new guide has been launched today by the National Development team for Inclusion (NDTi) to help commissioners to implement Government policy on how to commission cost- and outcome-effective services for people with learning disabilities described as 'challenging'. 

The guide has been funded by the Department of Health as part of the Valuing People Now delivery plan. People with learning disabilities who are also labelled as 'challenging' services continue to get poor quality services and outcomes across most of the country. The costs of these services are often very high. Government policy on changing this is described in the Mansell report.
