LeDeR is a service improvement programme to improve services for people with a learning disability and autistic people.
Established in 2017 and funded by NHS England and NHS Improvement, it is the first of its kind and was created to improve care, reduce health inequalities and prevent people with a learning disability dying sooner than the general population. From late 2021 LeDeR will include improving services for autistic people too.
