Adults :: Learning disabilities :: Projected service use and outcomes in 3--5 years and 5--10 years

The Learning Disabilities Observatory highlights the expectation that over the next 20 years we will see an increase in the number of people with learning disabilities and that by 2030 the number of people aged 70 and over with learning disabilities will more than double. This is expected to be accompanied by an increase in the complexity of needs as young people with learning disabilities with extremely complex needs are now living well into adulthood.
