Local Action Groups (LAGs) were set up throughout Essex by the County Council over 10 years ago. They are independent of the Council and they are asked to identify gaps in services and to help with developing solutions to problems and improving access to services for people with a learning disability and their families.

 

LAGs try to bring together everybody who provides or uses services in their area. They make recommendations to the Council about improvements which are needed and are used by the Council as a sounding board for changes which are proposed.

 

The Council made the decision at the outset that people chosen as Chairs of LAGs should be entirely independent. Membership includes parent/carers, people with a learning disability, and representatives of social services, health, Local  Council Housing, voluntary organisations and providers of services. Meetings are open and public and so anybody interested in the way learning disability services are run is welcome to attend.  Please see below details of LAG groups in your area and a list of forthcoming meetings - please feel free to attend any meeting to either listen, take part in discussion or to raise an issue.
