These reports focus on how young people with learning disabilities, families, professionals and services can together define their shared expectations for the future and share a commitment to equal lives for young people with learning disabilities. The report addresses how this can be achieved within the context of the current economic climate and threats to budgets for care and support. Section of an ilustration showing young people choosing options.

We outline how young people can achieve good lives in fair and cost effective ways by thinking differently about support and communities and working together so that better value is achieved with the money and resources that we have.

A major factor in sharing expectations is developing more open and honest relationships between commissioners, providers, young people and families and therefore more honest conversations about money and resources so that we can share decision making about how best to use these resources.

This report draws on a series of discussions with young people, families and professionals form across London and summarises their views of how we can adopt positive approaches to sharing expectations for good outcomes in their lives.
