Learning Disability Response Plan (LDRP)
What is the Learning Disability Response Plan?
The Learning Disability Response Plan (LDRP) is a partnership between Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Sussex Police to ensure the police have a better understanding of individuals needs, reduce contact time with the police and improve outcomes for people who have complex needs.
It will act as an information alert for police officers responding to calls or concerns relating to individuals with learning disabilities, some of whom are diagnosed with mental health and/or complex needs. The response plan will enable the police to make decisions in a more person- centred way as opposed to a crime and evidence motivated-based decision, reducing resources input and providing better outcome for those individuals.
Who is eligible for the LDRP?
Individuals eligible for this scheme will have a previous offence/s or will have had contact with the police within the last year.
How does it work?
If you meet the above criteria, or care for someone who does, email LDRP@sussex.pnn.police.uk. The pack will contain an easy read document to support understanding.
