Big Plan 2018 to 2021

The Big Plan 2018 to 2021 is how Bournemouth Borough Council and Borough of Poole as well as the Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group want to work together to provide health and social care services for adults with learning disabilities.


The Big Plan has been developed in partnership with Bournemouth and Poole Learning Disability Partnership Board, and with the support of People First Forum (was Bournemouth People First and Poole Forum) and family carers.

The Big Plan has 7 Big Aims:

  • where I live
  • staying healthy
  • having a good life
  • the right care and support
  • keeping safe
  • becoming an adult
  • support for my family 

The Big Plan has been produced as an easy read document and is accompanied by the ‘Big Plan – Work Plan’ for the next 3 years and a more detailed appendix report, entitled ‘The Big Plan – Extra Information’.

Also available is a Big Plan poster.

From 1 April 2019 the Big Plan will be delivered by the newly merged local authority (Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole) and the Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group.
