Think Local, Act Personal, 2013

The Driving Up Quality Alliance is a group of organisations that represents and supports providers of housing and care. About 80% of provider organisations in England are members of the organisations in the alliance. They think that all providers need to take responsibility for making the services they provide better.

The Alliance has developed a Code and will invite all providers who support people with learning disabilities to sign up to this Code. This Code is part of the response to the post Winterbourne View action plan and the Concordat.

The Code has a particular focus on people with challenging behaviour who have longstanding and complex support needs but can be applied to all people with learning disabilities.
