Winterbourne Joint Improvement Programme is led by the Local Government Association (LGA) and NHS England, and funded by the Department of Health.

Our vision: Everyone,with no exception, deserves a place to call home. Person by person, area by area, the number of people with learning disabilities and autism in secure hospitals or assessment and treatment settings will permanently reduce. At the same time local community based support and early intervention will improve to the point it will become extremely rare for a person to be excluded from the right to live their life outside of a hospital setting.
