Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (LeDeR)

The Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (LeDeR) Programme is a world-first. It is the first national programme of its kind aimed at making improvements to the lives of people with learning disabilities. Reviews are being carried out with a view to improve the standard and quality of care for people with learning disabilities. People with learning disabilities, their families and carers have been central to developing and delivering the programme.

Why the LeDeR programme is so important

We urgently need to reduce the 20-year gap at the age of death for people with learning disabilities. Taking action is everyone’s responsibility.
