Living and Ageing Well Partnership Board
The Living and Ageing Well Partnership Board is the group through which Surrey County Council improves the engagement of older people in the design, delivery and coordination of services.
The board includes representatives from Age UK Surrey, borough and district councils, Public Health, organisations from the voluntary and faith sector, as well as older people who use our services.
The board meets quarterly and aims to support people to live and age well by promoting wellbeing; preventing, reducing or delaying social care needs; and promoting the provision of information and advice. The four living and ageing well priorities are:
- Reduce social isolation and loneliness
- Older people’s emotional wellbeing
- Nutrition and hydration
- Keeping warm and well
A monthly Living and Ageing Well newsletter showcases the work carried out in Surrey by Adult Social Care and partner organisations, as well as signposting events in the community.
To subscribe to the newsletter please email your details to: firstname.lastname@example.org

Learning Disability and Autism Partnership Board
Surrey’s Learning Disability and Autism Partnership Boards work together, so that people with a learning disability and/or autism can have a voice, be safe, be informed, remain healthy and confident to be part of their community.
The Learning Disability Partnership Board in Surrey meets bi-monthly and the Surrey Autism Partnership Board meets on a quarterly basis.
Both Surrey’s Learning Disability and Autism Partnership Boards are made up of key stakeholders who can bring about change. Members include the following:
- People with a learning disability and/or autism spectrum conditions
- Family carers
- Surrey County Council
- Health Organisations
- Voluntary Organisations
- Provider Organisations
Surrey's Learning Disability and Autism Boards' website has all the key information with regard to learning disability and autism in an accessible format.
We operate four Local Valuing People Groups to ensure that people at a local level are involved and informed. These groups meet bi-monthly and enable everyone to have a say at a local level on what and how things can be done for those people with a learning disability. More specifically they ensure people with a learning disability and their families have a voice and can contribute to improving their local communities. Each of the Local Valuing People Groups feed into the Learning Disability Board.
The Surrey Positive Behaviour Support Network is a group of providers, commissioners, professionals, people with a learning disability and/or autism and family carers. We meet quarterly, and work together to improve support for people whose behaviour may challenge in a way that threatens the quality of life/or the physical safety of the individual or others, to become a voice for best practice, so that this is reflected in strategic planning and service development in Surrey.
