CANCELLED: Local support for people with a learning disability




This event is now cancelled.

Speaker: Ashley McDougall, Local Service Delivery study Director, National Audit Office (NAO)


The seminar will outline the financial and service challenges involved in supporting people with a learning disability. It will draw on the National Audit Office’s work on local services and the national picture of straitened local authority finances to set out figures on expenditure, service provision and quality of life and the concerns of the Committee of Public Accounts.
