In February we told you about the government consultation on the mandatory training and we know lots of members are writing their own responses to this important consultation.
LDE is responding too based on what self advocates, family members and people who work in organisations have told us.
One of the biggest messages has been that the training should be led by people with learning disabilities and autistic people.
We have worked with Change People on a letter about question 17 in the consultation – that question is about people with learning disabilities being paid to be part of designing and delivering the training
You can read that here and please do sign it if you agree
If you do not agree with that or have other comments you want LDE to know about for what we tell the government then please do tell us here
Please do share your response if you can so other members know what we are all saying.
Thanks for everyone who has so far shared evidence on co delivered training so we can all stand with self advocate trainers who want to make a difference for health services for everyone.
