New Report from UK on Numbers of people with PMLD


Thanks Alex for forwarding me this report.
Eric Emerson has completed a report entitled “Estimating future numbers of adults with profound multiple learning disabilities in England” for the Centre for Disability Research at Lancaster University.
The brief report highlights an estimated sustained and growing number of adults with PMLD in England. He estimates that in the ‘average’ area in England with a population of 250,000, the number of adults with PMLD receiving support services will rise from 78 in 2009 to 105 in 2026.
I encourage you to read this report, which for me highlights the need for focus on people with PIMD, ensuring services that are appropriate for this group.
