Beyond Limits

Beyond Limits is facilitating person-centred planning and implementing delivery of support to 20 people with learning disabilities and mental health needs who all originated in Plymouth but are currently in Specialist Hospitals and Assessment & Treatment Units miles away from their homes and families. The aims of the project are: to change health commissioning in Plymouth to be person-centred; to develop indicative health budgets; to change the culture of provision for people who are perceived to challenge services; to provide person-centred support through detailed planning; and to completely stop the commissioning culture of placing people out of area and in specialist services.
