Please find preferred document with answers to all questions asked HERE

1. For accountancy purposes, we do not split the budget expenditure for people with learning disabilities by age, so this figure covers all expenditure from age 18.

2&3. the expenditure noted relates to both long and short term expenditure- we do not use definitions of short or long term support.

5. We expect to be securing support for more adults over the next 3 years. We have approximately 8-11 young people transitioning through from children's services annually, though this does vary. We are unable to predict the numbers of people who may move to Moray, though it has been between 3and 6 people in a year. Our data suggests that people with learning disabilities are living longer with more complex needs, and more complicated health conditions and more health conditions.

What we do hope to do is be in a position to provide better support by 2020, i.e. the right sized and right quality of support to meet peoples' outcomes in a way that encourages independence, rather than reliance on paid support- this is what people with learning disabilities have told us they want though our co-produced strategy.
