Welcome to the LDIAG archive
Please note: This website is no longer updated as the LDIAG met for the last time in September 2010.
However, on 3 September 2012, the new Learning Disability Advisory Group (LDAG) met for the first time. The LDAG is developing a new website www.ldag.info that we hope will be ready by the end of March 2014. In the meantime you can find out more on Facebook, Twitter or Google+ (search for LDAdvisoryGroup).
The Learning Disability Implementation Advisory Group (LDIAG) was set up in 2002 to oversee the Welsh Government's response to the report 'Fulfilling the Promises'. The group's role was to make sure that learning disabilities remained high on the agenda in Wales. It also advised the Welsh Government on learning disability issues and promoted the rights of people with learning disabilities.
Members of the group came from all sectors of the learning disabilities field including people with a learning disability, parents and carers, representatives from education, health, local authorities, research, the voluntary sector, service providers and individuals.
The group aimed to build on the Welsh Government's vision for the future set out in the 2007 Statement on Policy and Practice for Adults with a Learning Disability. Click on the links to find out more about the history of the LDIAG, minutes of meetings or the work of the sub-groups.
This archive also contains lots of information about learning disability issues in Wales such as policies, reports, newsletters, events and useful contact details.
