The Dynamic Support Register (DSR) aims to bring people together who are involved in supporting local children, young people and adults with learning disabilities and/or autism with the aim to ensure that they (and those important to them) receive robust, timely, proactive monitoring, intervention and support.

The children and adults on the DSR are at risk of going into hospital or long-term residential placement if they do not get the right care and treatment in the community.

It enables all agencies and services involved in commissioning and delivering care and support for people with learning disabilities and/or autism to work with the individual and their carers to provide the type of support the person needs to stay well at home.

Where can I find more information?

From 1st May 2023 we are making changes to the way we receive and administer referrals to the DSR including opening to self-referrals.  On 7th June we are holding a coproduction event with organisations and people with lived experience to plan how to make and implement the changes. For more information about this event contact
